How strange. I search for "disk" in settings and found "Manage Disks and Volumes"
This showed all 4 drives, but did not show any as formatted. And showed only 1 as available to have a partition created. So I went ahead and did that and then inspected the other drives. On each it listed them as having been setup with an MBR partition style rather than GPT which is the opposite of what I did with the diskmgmt.msc. I setup all 3 available drives using GPT rather than MBR.....
But after doing this all with "Disks & Volumes" it also all shows up the same way in diskmgmt.msc.
Except originally even in Disks & Volumes it was showing up differently I thought.
But I guess the lesson here is probably that if you are running Windows 11 for this, use the real windows 11 tools rather than the legacy tools.
Also if you track these as open or closed issues you can consider this closed.
But in case someone can find this useful, I
- went into each disk and clicked on properties for the disk
- changed the partition style to GPT
- Then went back to Disks & Volumes and clicked on create volume (partition) under the drive and created a partition normally
So now I have all 4 drives available it seems
