    @puchun jiang If a partition has a file system, but no drive letter (for example, E:), see Change a drive letter to add a drive letter manually.
    If a partition doesn't have a file system (it's listed as RAW instead of NTFS, ReFS, FAT32, or exFAT) and you know that the disk is empty, select and hold (or right-click) the partition and select Format. Formatting a disk erases all data on it, so don't do this if you're trying to recover files from the disk - instead, skip ahead to the next step.
    If the partition is listed as Unallocated and you know that the partition is empty, select and hold (or right-click) the unallocated partition and then select New Simple Volume and follow the instructions to create a volume in the free space. Don't do this if you're trying to recover files from this partition - instead, skip ahead to the next step.
