Windows 7: Unusable HDD?

Unusable HDD?

Hi, I just installed a brand new Western Digital HDD to my system. Previously, the system only had a ssd, and this hdd was added so I have place to stuff data. Unfortunately, Windows 7 cannot seem to find it.

I checked BIOS, and the HDD is detected there.

I poked around in disk management, and the hdd does show up. It is Online, but Unallocated. I figured I must need to format it or something, but I can't seem to bring that up as an option.

I've added a screenshot (hopefully) that may help in diagnosing my major malfunction.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Okay, nevermind. Should have been right-clicking just a couple inches more to the right....
