    Hi all

    New to forum but hoping someone can solve this little mystery.

    Approximately 6 months ago i fitted a secondary hard drive into a spare bay in my HP Laptop. Everything went smoothly and I have been using it without any problems to store my music, movies etc.

    This morning I tried to access the drive to save some files and the drive has disappeared.

    I have searched through 'adminiistrive tools' etc but it's nowhere to be found.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    disk management is the place to find a drive.

    You might like to ensure that the power and data cable at both ends is securely attached.
