Thank you everyone for your replies. I figured it out. The missing HHD was listed as a Foreign Drive. I added it as instructed. Thank you again!

Thank you everyone for your kind replies. I solved the problem by adding the missing HHD which was listed in Disk Management as a Foreign Drive. I clicked on it and added it to the list of active drives as instructed. Thank you again.

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

I'm just curious clyde.
In you first post you asked what should I do.

One of my data HDDs shows up in Device Manager but not in My Computer.  I  may have moved it to a different SATA port.  What should I do?
You were asked several times to complete this tutorial so these good members could see how to help you. You never completed the request. WHY?

Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

If would be nice to see the image to make sure things are as they should be.
