    Additional hard disk not showing

    Hi Guys,
    I purchased Dell Latitude last month which came with preinstalled windows 10. I have 2 hard disks in the laptop, one nvme 256GB and one sata 1TB. So today I installed Ubuntu on the nvme drive, in which windows 10 was previously installed. After the installation, I don't see my secondary 1TB SATA hard disk, which was showing on windows 10.

    Can you please help on how I can add my secondary hard disk?

    Where is this disk not showing?

    Have you checked in GParted (if you have it installed) and/or the output from running
    Code:
    lsblk -o +FSTYPE
    in Terminal?

    What format is second drive?
    If NTFS, did you leave Windows fast start up on? That sets hibernation flag.
    If hibernation flag Linux NTFS driver will not mount the NTFS partition(s) to prevent damage.
    Post this:
    sudo parted -l

    Best not to use NTFS with Linux as it will need chkdsk & defrag, which only can be run from Windows, not from Linux.
    You can force mount manually as read/only and copy data to another drive. Then reformat to ext4.

    Hi, Thanks for your time.

    I can see my hard disk with lsblk (attached snapshot). But I still don't know how to mount it.

    Assuming the stuff on sda is of no importance and can be erased, I would just use the partition editor to make a new GPT partition table on sda, and then create new ext4 partition(s) for Linux use.

    One point I note is that there is no Name attached to your ext4 partition.

    Hi, Thanks for your time.
    There is no important data in my laptop.
    I wanted 256GB Nvme for my OS and 1TB for my /home folder
    Can you tell me how I can do that. If it means reinstalling, I can do that too.

    Hi, I don't know much about this, does no Name in my ext4 can cause any problem?
