Hard drive disappeared

Jump to solution

Since 2014 I have a NUC54250WYKH1 with a 240GB Intel mSATA SSD and a Western Digital 1 TB hard drive in my NUC.

After a restart the hard drive doesn't show anymore in device manager. It is invisible in my system. Everything else is fine.

Any advice how to get my drive back, please?

Shutdown the NUC completely (including unplug from wall). Wait 1 minute. Reconnect and boot back up. Check if drive is working.

If, at this point, if the drive is still not working, I suggest that you try connecting it to another PC (or to this PC using a USB adapter if you have one) and see if it works then.
