HD shows up as unallocated space

#1 Post by phaseshift »

Okay so I had 2 external hard drives. They were both western digital external hard drives that I used on mac mac mini. I just built a PC/WIndows and decided to gut the enclosures and put both western digital hard drives in the pc. However they both show up as unallocated space.

1st HD is 1tb
2nd HD is 2tb

The only I did was made a "new simple volume" on the first HD and activated it to see if it shows my files. thw 2nd 2TB I didn't touch since it is the more important drive.

Please I need help.
