    Hello Everyone, (New here).. For a few days now I have the GLK-UC2X Mini PC. I like it. With this said, via other forums and recommendations I purchased more Memory (Samsung 4GB PCC$-19200 DDR 4-2400Mhz non-ECC Unbuffered CL17--Part#M471A5244CBO-CRC This installed and recognized perfectly -NP. T hen I installed this WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280 _1TB .. I plugged power back in and restarted and I expected to see another Drive and letter other than the primary original drive in Win C: I see nothing. Making this short.. yes I went to Disk Management and only shows the OEM 57.7GB SanDisk DA4064A. not even in system files. I went to DEVICE MANAGER and (Hello) it shows there under the OEM disk. checked everything and search every where. even emails with Vendor Ken via Amazon contacts. I was told simply I need to format the disk after all I have tried and been thru. (BTW I know everything just fine in BIOS also.."I guess because it showing in the bios too .

    Ok anyone, how would you go about formatting this if I don't see it in Windows 10..

    Thanks for reading of my situation. I don't know too much about these mini pc's, but I try. I like it so far except I have this little setback.. can anyone guide or advise me. "How do you format a new ssd if you can't see it to be recognized then by windows? Thanks for your time -Jon

    P.S. Thank you Ken on Amazon for the emails.. and so I decide to come here and try.

    Hi Jon,

    First of all, please make sure the drive has been properly installed into the M.2 slot:

    Then, can you see the newly installed drive inside of BIOS and Windows Device Manager?
    For example:

    If the answer is YES, what you have to do is formatting the new drive inside of Windows before you can get access to it:

    "I plugged power back in and restarted and I expected to see another Drive and letter other than the primary original drive in Win C: I see nothing."

    This is not true until you format the new SSD and assign a drive letter to it.
