Can't access HDD

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I recently formatted and reinstalled windows on a SSD. I have a blank HDD for storage and another HDD full of my documents and files as backup from my previous install, but I can't access it. It shows up in the bios and even in disk manager in windows, but I can't access its' files and it doesn't show up under my computer. How can I access it? I do not want to format it.

What drive letter does it give it in disk manager?
