Adding a New Disk to an Existing Windows Installation

In the graphical pane of Disk Management, a brand new hard disk, whether internal or external, appears like this:

L-alDisk 2

Basic 232.88 GB Online

232.88 GB Unallocated

To make this disk available for storage, you need to create one or more volumes, assign drive letters, label the volumes (if you don't want them to be identified in Windows Explorer as simply "New Volume"), and format the new volumes. You can carry out all of these steps from within the New Simple Volume wizard.
