I'm configuring a Windows Server 2k8 for the first time ever and it comes with 2 300GB HDDs. The problem is, the secondary would be D drive is not available in explorer. It shows up under the storage manager and Speccy also sees it, so it does exist. I can't assign it a drive letter either. There's no RAID setup, so that isn't the issue.
Anyway, I will really appreciate any suggestions on how to fix this issue.
Thanks in advance!
Both drives show up in Device Manager. Type: Healthy (Active, Primary Partition); State: Online.
So, I figured it out, but I was just screwing around. Apperantly there was a volume setup on it which was pretty much a ghost. At first I wasn't sure if I should touch it or not, but then I decided since there was no data to loose since I can't access it, I might as well click on my only available option, which was to delete the volume. Thus the drive became "Unallocated" and I was able to create a new simple volume and now I'm able to use it.
So, for anyone having issues like these, just hit the delete button and start from scratch. In my case this was caused by laziness on whoever provisioned my server at GoDaddy. They just imaged it and left it as it was without fixing the drive.
