    HDD showing in BIOS not in Windows after upgrade


    Hello everyone:

    I will try my best to reflex my issue:
    i upgrade my pc adding 2 memory slots and a new graphic card. Everything is perfect, but i can't access one of my HDD that i linked with my download folder.
    My drives before my upgrade were as it follows:
    C: SSD Evo 850 Windows installed
    D: SSD Evo 850 Software
    E: 4TB WD Black Games
    G: 500gb Download folder

    Now i can read all first 3 drives but the 4th. If i enter command prompt i can read it as i:> drive.

    I will appreciate all your help to solve this problem. I would like to restore it to what it was.

    Regards,
    Ignacio

    A screenshot of disk management, with the columns widened so we can see all the data in the columns, would help us immensely to offer advice:

    As stated, go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator.
    In the Elevated Disk Management window, in the lower pane, is your missing drive showing up? Does it say the file system is Unallocated Space, or does it say in the Disk # (ie) Disk1 Disk2 etc that the drive in Not Initialized?
    You can try and recovery your files using the Free TestDisk Software, You will need another drive of the same size or larger to restore your files to.
