I purchased a 1 TB hard drive a year ago (approximately). I installed on my PC that was running Windows XP at the time, and ran the WD Align software. I later upgraded to Windows 7, and I never had any problems with my 1 TB drive.
Today that PC started giving me trouble so I bought a new one and took the 1 TB drive and added it to my new PC, as I did with my old PC when I first bought the 1 TB drive. The drive does not appear as a hard disk in the Windows Explorer windows, but when I ran the Data Lifeguard Diagnostic software it tells me that it is OK.
Should I install this hard drive in any specific way so that it is recognized by my new PC as a functioning second hard drive? (the hard drive that runs Windows is a 500 GB Seagate one that came with the new PC) It is almost full of data and I don’t want to loseit!
Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
