Well actually.... it DOES see the disk in Disk Management but it's not initialized. It does NOT show up as a lettered, readable disk in File Explorer.
What I'm attempting to do is use a SATA-to-USB adapter connected to a Windows 7 computer to retrieve and back up personal data files on a disk removed from a machine running Windows 10 which has a motherboard problem.
I used to be able to pull hard drives from XP, Vista, and 7 systems, connect a USB-SATA adapter to a working computer and the pulled drive and navigate the pulled drive. But not with a disk taken from a Windows 10 machine - file Explorer doesn't recognize it.
What's the trick?
