Without formatting the new drive there is nothing Windows can do with it. Click Start
, type "diskmgmt.msc", and press enter.
As soon as you enter disk management, Windows should detect the new drive and should start the Hard Drive Initialization Wizard.
Once it has finished, right click the part that says "465.66 GB Unallocated", and select New Partition. This will start the New Partition Wizard.
Windows will ask what type of partition you want to create. Select Extended Partition
Once you're back in Disk Management, right click your drive and select "New Logical Drive".
You will then be taken to the New Partition Wizard again. This time choose Logical Drive. You will then get the option to specify the partition size. For simplicity's sake, I would just choose the max disk space.
Now you get to choose whether you want it to have a drive letter, or if you want to mount it on your C:\ Drive. If you mount it on your C drive, it will appear there under a folder. If you want it to have it's own drive letter, it will appear in my computer just like your C:\ drive. It's up to you.
After this you format the disk. Click Format this partition with the following settings
. Choose NTFS
for the file system, Default
for the allocation unit size, and feel free to name the volume label what you like. Do not
check "Perform a quick format" or "Enable file and folder compression" .
Once you have done all this, your disk should be all ready to be used. Hope this helps
