"Windows 10 not assigning a drive letter to an old Win7 formatted HDD", I've built a new desktop Windows 10 PC The machine is up and running nicely. Actually the fastest and easiest build I've ever done. Not quite sure why I sorted out Windows 10 on my new laptop and with CLASSIC SHELL installed I'm pretty happy with the operating system. Now it's time to move the DATA hard disk drive from my old Windows 7 Home desktop unit over into the new machine. It's a WD 160 GB drive with about 38 GB of files so I see no reason not to just put it in the new machine. Problem is that when I connect it to the new machine via SATA the BIOS and Windows DRIVE MANAGEMENT see the HDD but almost all options for assigning a drive letter are grayed out. I believe the only right click option active in the DISK MANAGEMENT window is DELETE VOLUME. Is this an issue of Windows 10 not being able to read an win7 formatted drive? Or do you think there will be some way I'll be able to get this hard drive recognized by Windows 10. There are alternatives of course like copying the old drive to a new blank Windows 10 formatted drive by going through the network.

Disk formatting is the process of preparing a data storage device such as a hard disk drive, solid-state drive, floppy disk or USB flash drive for initial use. High-level formatting is the process of setting up an empty file system on a disk partition or logical volume and, for PCs, installing a boot sector. This is a fast operation, and is sometimes referred to as quick formatting. Reformatting often carries the implication that the operating system and all other software will be reinstalled after the format is complete. Rather than fixing an installation suffering from malfunction or security compromise, it may be necessary to simply reformat everything and start from scratch. Various colloquialisms exist for this process, such as "wipe and reload", "nuke and pave", "reimage", etc. Sometimes, data present in the physical drives (Internal/External Hard disk, Pen Drive, etc.) gets lost, deleted and formatted due to circumstances like virus attack, accidental deletion or accidental use of SHIFT+DELETE. In these cases, data recovery software are used to recover/restore the data files. Logical recovery of files, partition, MBR and filesystem structures After the drive has been cloned to a new drive, it is suitable to attempt the retrieval of lost data. If the drive has failed logically, there are a number of reasons for that. Using the clone it may be possible to repair the partition table or master boot record (MBR) in order to read the file system's data structure and retrieve stored data.
