I recently installed an HGST 1TB HDD using Ultrabay caddy (see related question). I am using Windows 7 pro.
On restart, I can see the HGST in device manager. However It does not show up as a drive. Need help to get it going. Thanks.

OK, so I found out that the disk came without a filesystem. So I initialized an NTFS file system using computer > manage, then mounted it on an empty folder (C:\HGST)
The disk is now accessible but the free space shown in Explorer does not take this volume in account. So it shows only C-disk free space which is very incomplete info.
How can this be fixed? How can I stat it? Thanks.

Look under administrative tools/computer management/disk management
