Cannot see a raid drive in Windows 7

  Tim 10:52 17 Jan 2010

I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD3R motherboard in which I have installed two Raid 1 arrays. One if for the Operating system and programs and the other raid array is for my data.

I have installed Windows 7 64 bit together with with the raid driver and W7 works OK.

However I cannot see my second raid drive array in Windows Explorer - It only shows the first array (drive C). This second raid array is shown in Device manager and there appears to be no problem shown with it.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to get my second raid array to work in W7?

Right click the second array in device manager and initialise and format it!

Sorry meant to say, Right click computer>manage, then click disk management, then format it!

Thanks for that - I did what yousuggested in Windows Explorer and I was able to format it OK
