Windows Explorer doesn´t recognize my 2nd HD

    Hi
    I´ve just conected a 2nd HD (Samsung 80 G8). I´ve changed it from another
    computer also as a 2nd primary HD and it was O.K. It´s formated NTFS and
    working fine. Partition Magic did recognized it. Acronis True Image found it
    and I was able to made a Clone from a Seagate 250 GB (only 10% full). The
    bios Setup recognize it and after the Clone I could even boot from it
    changing the boot sequence in BIOS. Windows Disk Manager show it either.
    Then came the problem: Windows Explorer doesn´t show it and Second Copy also
    ignores it. I want to configure Second Copy to make exact copies of
    everything I do in disk 01, evry thing that change while I´m working at
    every 2 hours.
    At least I have a clone I can use but I want it exactly as the original.
    Any hint?
    TIA
    Edgard Kniriem

    Thank you Andrew.
    I´ve done it but "make active" was greyed. I tried to change the drive
    letter and it worked. It appeared either in Windows Explorer and in Second
    Copy and I´ve already configured it to work properly.
    Thank again
    Edgard

    Thank you Andrew.
    I did it but the "make active" msg was greyed than I decided to change the
    drive letter and the Disk 2 was recognized. Anyway I learned one more
    lesson. Thanks a lot.
