    Cannot find my hdd in "My Pc"


    Hey guys, I just installed windows 10 on my ssd, works perfectly. Except I cannot find my hdd in "my pc" as the title says. I can find it in Device Manager, says the drive is working properly. Maybe its just tucked away somewhere, I just cant find it when trying to install games and what not. Anyone else run into this?
    Thanks for your help!

    Open the Disk Management and check if the disk has been assigned a letter for the drive. If not, it will be hidden from This PC

    Nice, thanks man! just what I needed. I found the drive, it was under system reserve. Created a letter and opened up the 1gig of unassigned memory.

    If it's a system reserved partition and it's only 1GB. You should leave it hidden

    Agreed, if it is the System Reserved partition, it should not be used for data.

    sp00kedd, please port a screen shot of Disk Management.
