I have one 1TB HDD and one SSD on my PC. OS: Win10. About a month ago I bought another HDD, WD Purple 4TB, set everything up, formatted it, everything was okay until now.
I copied photos on this new HDD, everything looked okay. I imported photos into Lightroom, Lightroom showed me warning that 3 photos weren't imported because they may be corrupted or something but I just clicked okay and started editing photos after I edited about 3 photos and it took way too long for other photos to load, everything was slow, so I restarted my PC and when it came back on my new WD Purple HDD wasn't showing up. It's not in device management nor in disk management. I tried to uplug and plug cables, tried different cables and ports, nothing helps.
I tried to enter BIOS to see if it's in there, but when I press F12 as it says on the loading screen, nothing happens, PC is frozen and the loading screen stays there forever. I tried this many times, always the same. Tried to clear CMOS by pushing the button on my motherboard, didn't help. I removed the battery from CMOS, put it back in after about 1.5 hours, nothing changes.
I also tried uninstalling the newest windows updates, didn't help.
I have no idea what to do. HDD doesn't seem to be making any strange noises or anything, I can hear the HDD platter start spinning when I turn on my PC and it slows down the spinning after a while so I suppose it's working.
If you have any idea what should I do, please help. Thank you.
