Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

I Recently ordered a new 2TB 6GB/s HDD, and i plugged it into my pc, as i started up my pc i was told that to make the changes i need to restart my pc, then i saw that drivers were installing, my new HDD showed up there, but after i restarted PC Twice, it didn't show up in my computer, do i need to do something else? to be honest i've never ordered in a HDD before so i don't know what you have to go through, but im pritey sure its plug in, driver install, and use... help please!

You may have to go into Disk Management and format the drive, which will assign it a drive letter. Hard drives come unformatted, so they are ready to be prepped for whatever way you plan to use it.
