    Windows 10 SATA WD SSD not showing up in windows explorer

    I wasn't able to do that with window disc management so I downloaded EaseUS partitician Master that enabled me to address the drive and partician it so it would show in windows explorer. Problem resolved.

    Windows 10 SATA WD SSD not showing up in windows explorer

    The reason I didn't see that I had posted before was that I was on pag1 and things had moved on to page 2. Hi GDany, so I went into the BIOS and loaded Optimized Defaults and have saved and exited that. So, I just have to wait and see what transpires now. Thanks again GDany for you help.

    For some reason I didn't see the post you made until I responded again about the running chkdsk. Hi GDany, My son built this PC for me about a year and a half ago. No it didn't have an m.2.ssd it had a regular mechanical hard drive. The HHD was then changed to the Crucial MX500 SSD. I did this...

    Okay Spirit Wolfe I did as you indicated. I highlighted the drive in device management and pressed delete key. It asked, 'If I was sure I wanted to uninstall the device?' I clicked on 'Yes'. It then informed me that 'I had to restart the PC now for the changes to take effect. Did I want to...

    I downloaded and installed 'Crucial Storage Executive.' It indicates that the drive is in 'Good Health' and that the latest firmware is installed. 'Drive Details,' indicates the drive is in 'Good Health' with the latest driver installed i.e. 10.0.19041.488 (Standard SATA AHCI. I ran S.M.A.R.T...

    When I go to device manager, I don't see the option to highlight and delete it. Is uninstall the device what you mean? I updated the driver and it indicates that the best one for my device is installed. It indicates that there may be a better on on the manufacturers website or in updates.
