Computer OS: Windows XPBrowser: IE
I shut off th computer then shut off the external. went to my computer to access the external. local disk E pops up, and a window pops up says ext hard drive needs to be reformatted.
Hi,Did it just start doing this? Is this when you click on the drive? Sounds like the partition is corrupted.Rob
I dropped my computer and the external was on and connected.
Hi,Well that's not good. Hopefully it's just some corrupted partition tables and not physical damage to the drive. Try running Scandisk or Chkdsk on it in Windows.Rob
i ran the scan disk,and it said no problem with ext hardrive! but, could i transfer my movies to another ext harddrive, then reformat.
Download the demo version of Partition Recovery here:http://www.ptdd.com/download.htmIt only lets you scan and backup but try that and see if it sees the drive as having a corrupt partition.Rob
