SSD not showing in file manager


New Member
Recently added another ssd to my gaming computer that has a b450m aorus elite motherboard. It has an m.2 1tb ssd, a 80gb harddrive utilized as a boot drive, and i just installed a 120gb ssd. I can see the 120gb ssd in the bios but it is not showing up in file manager or anywhere in windows. I already referred to my motherboard owners manual to verify that i was not plugged into a disabled sata port due to the m.2 drive but it is installed in an active one but i cannot seem to find it in windows anywhere. Thanks for the help!

Does it show up in Disk Management? You probably just need to initialize it and format
