Hi,

I have an internal HDD connected to a pc (os:windows 7) via a usb reduction.

The problem is, the HDD shows just in the disc manager as a healthy volume with the right size, but it misses a letter, and it looks like it has no file system.
I cannot format it or do anything, but delete the volume (which, as I understand, would not solve the problem).

HDD doesn't show either in this pc or in the list of disks listed by diskpart tool.

Is there any way I could make it work?

YOu may need to either bring it online, or initialize it, or you may need to create the volume( Drive Letter). All of these can be accomplished in Disk Manager.

I haven't deleted the volume, I was just trying to say that it is the only option left in the disk manager, none of the others are available, but I didn't delete it, sice I knew it would not have solved it.

Any ideas what might be wrong or how could I solve it?

As you said you have deleted the drive then there is only one way to get it back, try disk drive recovery software and recover your lost volume from the computer. After recovering the lost drive use cmd command prompt to clean the disk drive and recreate the new partition.

There are two places to Right click in the disk manager. See examples:


And...



Can you take the disk Offline? If not it isn't active!
