I've recently built a PC and got it working. In this new PC I had a 320 GB hard drive for windows and a 1TB drive for media. I formatted the 1TB drive on a different computer and transferred some files over to it. I then took the 1TB drive and put it in the new PC. The new PC is recognizing the hard drive, but not that it has already been formatted and requires it to be formatted, which will lose all the data already stored on it. How can I get the new PC to recognize the hard drive format without having to reformat it? Thanks!
It might be worth noting that I formatted the drive as a NTFS system on a Windows 7 machine and now it is running in the new PC which is running Windows 8.
