Thank you in advance for your help.
I reinstalled Windows 10 on my desktop computer. I have two hard drives in my computer. Windows was re-installed in my c drive where it has always lived. But now, I can no longer access my d drive. The d drive was working perfect before re-installing windows and I do have data on it that I would like to keep / retrieve. Windows explorer does not show d drive at all.
The hard drive is a Hitachi HUA722020ALA331. It is a 2 TB hard drive.
Here's what I've tried:
When I go to disk manager, it immediately tells me that I need to inititialize the disk before logical disk manager can access it. I have tried to initialize it using both MBR and GPT but either option gives me a message from the Virtual Disk Manager saying the device is not ready. In disk manager it also shows the drive with a red arrow, unknown, not initialized and with no information.
When i go to diskpart it will show the drive being online but also shows it with a size of 0 B. It also tells me that the drive is readonly and when i type in the command "attributes disk clear readonly" diskpart fails to clear readonly.
I have also uninstalled and re-installed the drive. Checked updates for drivers. It has most current driver.
I have also tried using data recovery software from stellar and easeus and neither of them show the drive.
I also took out the hard drive and connected it to a Nexstar and connected it via usb to my laptop when i couldn't get working as an internal drive to my desktop. Tried all the above and still the same. I also made sure to run as administrator.
I don't know what else to try. Please help.
