I've read a couple of posts and most seem to be similar to my problem but I still can't figure out how to do this...
I have a new computer, Dell, and I quickly installed windows 7 ultimate on it. Shortly after I added my old HDD on a SATA. In BIOS I activated the SATA slot, which for some reason was off, and I can -see- the old HDD in my device manager as well as my new one.
However, when I go into explorer I cant see the HDD and I can't access it. When I go to disk management, I can see that the drive is detected but it won't let me assign a letter to it AND it appears as though it doesn't have anything on it!! It only has free space!! Actually, the only thing it will let me do is "delete volume".
But, there is one more thing. That HDD does not have Windows installed, it has Linux, which I think is the problem. I don't want to format it because I have many things there that I want to recover.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
