Well, there can be 2 scenarios:

A. Your Drive is attached, but undetected or unreadable. There might be chances that your drive is having an unsupported file system or it may have bad sectors.

In this scenario,

• Right click on “This PC”, select Manage. • Then, in the dialogue box that opens, Select Disk Management from the left side panel (last option).

There, look below the white portion, you will find a representation of the Disks connected. If it is shown there.

• Right Click on your SSD, Format the drive and assign a drive letter to it.

Then wait a few seconds and it will be shown in the Drives panel.

B. Your drive may not be attached properly.

Check your connections in this case. When shown in Disk Management, follow the above procedure.

If you’re looking for best possible ways to clone or move your HDD data to SSD then I recommend you to check out this blog: https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/how-to-migrate-windows-10-from-old-hdd-to-ssd/

Hope this will help.

Well, there might be chances that there is some technical issue with your drive. Maybe it is corrupted or having some other glitch. In that case, I suggest you to have word with the customer support of the SSD drive company.
