Help! HDD not showing up!

Hi Guys,

I recently build my first PC, and I had a 120 GB Samsung 850 EVO installed, as well as a WD 1TB Black HDD. I obviously installed windows 10 on the SSD, and then connected the HDD after installation. Now, when I go to my device manager, I can see that both my SSD and HDD are both connected, but when I go to Settings > System > Storage, only 111GB (SSD space) is showing up. What should I do about this? I dont want all my programs on my SSD, as that will waste expensive SSD space. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
