Detect both hard drives in device manager but only one hard drive shows in explorer

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo T430s.

 

The laptop has two hard drives, a 256gb SSD and a 500gb HDD.

 

Both show in Device Manager but only the SSD shows up in exploer.

 

500gb HDD: HGST HTS725050A7E630

256GB SSD: LITEONIT LMT-256M6M mSATA 256GB

 

I updated the drivers and they said they are updated.

 

Troubleshooting that I haven't tried is going into BIOS.  I'm not sure, or don't know how to get into BIOS, and when I do, I do not know what to try once I get in.

 

I'm not sure why both hard drives are not showing up in explorer on it's own.

 

Details of my computer:

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Have you created a partition on the 500gb drive?

 

Regards.

Solution:

 

All you need to do is assign a drive letter. You should be able to do this by right clicking My Computer > Manage > Disk Management. From there you will see your partition(s) and you simply right click > change driver letters and paths > assign a letter.
