Why is HDD not visible in My computer?

A little googling, I clicked on the My computer icon, then clicked on disk Management and my hard drive was discovered2d6c0f7da81741458103d0c73b85a63e.png

The other computers see?
Yes, connected to the second computer - everything is seen - winona_Lueilwi commented on September 26th 19 at 07:24
And on test computer in the same USB port for other drives visible, mouse, flash drives, smartphones?

If Yes, then I would be stuck G to a different USB connector and tried to change the letter. So, just to verify that the OS sees the disk as a whole.

If not, the USB connector damaged/clogged.

In addition it would be good to run chkdisk on this G from the second successful company. - Alfred48 commented on September 26th 19 at 07:27
When connecting other devices on the same USB are the brakes, it takes time to connect, and sometimes connects quickly. But if I change the letter with my data on the hard drive nothing happens(sorry for the stupid question)? - winona_Lueilwi commented on September 26th 19 at 07:30
What chkdisk? - winona_Lueilwi commented on September 26th 19 at 07:33
Data something can only happen in very strange situations. For example, it turned out that you have some kind of special bomb inside the computer will explode as soon as the system will go to drive M:. And then you rename G: in M:! ;-) You know? The presence of a drive letter does not change anything unless your computer is not configured to intentionally do something with these letters.

Check Disk (.exe) is a program that checks files and the disk surface, and trying to repair the errors detected. Start Windows Explorer on the drive letter right mouse button, properties, tools, check disk - Alfred48 commented on September 26th 19 at 07:36

Create a shortcut on the desktop to the G: drive and go through it.
There are many reasons why the disk may not appear, against breakage or incorrect registry settings.

The most obvious option on the disc is nothing, and mark "Hide empty drives" in the view settings folders.
my hard drive is clogged to the eyeballs - 913 GB occupied, 18 freely - winona_Lueilwi commented on September 26th 19 at 07:28
