I've just finished putting together a new Pc for the GF went to go check the HDD's both are showing up as fine in the Bios. However under windows explorer the Sata drive isn't showing up. So I went to device manager and it says that the drive is working properly So I went to Computer Management and the drive is listed as being; Healthy (Primary Partition) Layout - Simple Type - Basic File System is blank but it has no volume label if I right click it all options are greyed out except Delete Volume. Here's the problem normally I would just delete the volume and recreate the partition etc but this drive has information on it that I HAVE TO RECOVER. Does anyone know a way of forcing Windows 7 to assign it a label remembering I can't just change the drive letter as A. it doesn't have one and B. the options greyed out. System is using Windows 7 - Fresh install as of less than 12 hours ago - fully updated Any help at all would be appreciated guys as I'm stuck as what to do next. (Not sure if it helps but I do have access to another Pc if I need it so I can change the drive to a new machine. I just don't want to do it if its not going to help. Second PC is running Windows XP SP3) EDIT 1: if I tell computer management to view the disk list the sata drive is showing up as an IDE drive for some reason. EDIT 2: I went into the bios and changed the drive setting to ACHI and when it booted into windows it started installing sata drivers etc then said the device was ready to use but it still hasn't assigned it a drive letter and all the options except delete volume are still greyed out.
