Got a new 500gb Hdd for my laptop and when installing Windows 10 I created another partition but now just shows on of the partitions (249gb).
How can I find the second one ?
thanks in advance for the help.

Open Disk management. Right click over the WINDOWS key, and select DISK MANAGEMENT.

On the top menu, under the volume column, Right Click on the inactive disk (BLACK). Select Mark Partition as active.

Now, in the botom section, right click over the drive that was just activated, and enable it. Then mount it!

How did you create the partition? Did you mark it as active?

Then that is the problem, you have to mark it as an active partition. enable it, and activate it!
