Error adding a drive... please help!


I formatted my machine and reinstalled windows. After reinstalling everything the pool drive showed up as it should and my pool was where it was before. Problem is I have a 500gb SSD that's perfectly healthy from another machine but i cant add it to the pool. If its unformatted with no partition, it shows up in the list. When I add it I get this error. If i try to create a simple partition and format it it works fine in windows, but Stablebit doesn't see it in the list to add! Any help is appreciated!

When you format it manually, does it show up as only having one volume in Windows Disk Management, with all four of the following: Simple, Basic, NTFS, Healthy (Primary Partition)?

After being manually formatted, does it successully pass a command-line check for bad sectors: chkdsk driveletter: /r /v

e.g. if it's formatted as d:\ drive, then "chksk d: /r /v" from an administrator command prompt.
