Problems finding my hard drive

Hi!

I recently buyed a WD 2TB. I wired it up, but it wont show on My Computer, and a friend of me told me to find the hard drive and try to "Role it back", but i cant push the button to do that, could anyone help me please?

My Windows are on Norwegian, would be extra good if a norwegian knew the problem, but could try to understand it on english aswell.

Is this an internal HD or an external HD ?

Does it show up in Disk Management ?

It's an Internal HD.

Its on Norwegian, but you might understand it anyway.

Hello Emanuel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Your drive (Disk 0) is there as the "Unallocated" one.

You would just need to start at step 2 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to create a New Simple Volume with Disk 0 to have a drive letter assigned to it. Afterwards, it will show up in the Computer window.

Partition or Volume - Create New
