I have a 3rd SSD installed on my system which shows up in Computer Management, but does not show up in this PC. I can't find a way to give the disk a name or to allocate it. I've tried disabling and enabling it, and uninstalling and installed it, and the drivers are up to date. Any ideas?

You have to format it first (or create volume). Right-click on it to see the options.

You're welcome. Have you sorted it out?
Yes, I have. I didn't realize that I had to format the drive again, since I'd already done that before removing partitions. All working nicely now.
