Answer:
Answer:

Cmd-shift-C (Go > Computer) will show all mounted volumes.

You can reset the Sidebar Finder Preferences to show all external drives. If the checkbox has a dash ( - ) in it, then some drives have been removed from the sidebar. Click the checkbox to make it a check mark and all mounted volumes should then show in the sidebar.


The Sidebar, like the Dock, is not the "source" information. Both are places to put frequently used items. I have removed many of my external drives from Sidebar, including the Time Machine disk as I will never use it myself.
