A friend has given me some old internal drives I use in a dock for storage and back up.
They work great with one exception, a Mac drive that he said I would need to rformat for my windows 7 machine.
Initially the drive did not show up but I found it with Disk Management and followed the instructions here,
Partitioning and Formatting the Drive
We can use the Windows Disk Management tool to fix partition and file system issues with the drive. If you see that the drive is unpartitioned and is full of “unallocated space,” you’ll want to create a new partition on it. This will allow Windows and other operating systems to use it.
To do so, right-click inside the unallocated space, select New Simple Volume, and go through the wizard to create a new partition.
But the "new simple volume" option will not highlight.
