    Hi all. I installed the new SSD drive and went to disk management to initialize formatting an NTFS partition on it. It worked and is showing the drive letter on disk management but there seems to not be a path to it when I open up My Computer to start creating folders on it.

    How can I get it to show up with the other drives? Thank you.

    It was that the drive letter that I chose, which was Z, was not being liked by Windows. I chose A, restarted the PC and now it is showing up with the other drives. Why can't all problems be this simple? :D
