Recently, i bought a new computer and i connect my external hard drive to the computer. After i done with the transferring i tried to disconnect it but it said i can't because it's still in use. so, without any hesitated i just plugged out the external hd from the computer and when connected it back to the computer it said that the external hd is corrupted and unreadable. I try to perform a check disk but it won't allow me to do that. it say, it cannot perform the disk check because it can't access the disk. please help me, i have my family and my gf pics in there. i really need it.
Try the Disk Check from the Command Prompt; In the search bar or Start\Run command, type: CMD.exe, next type: "chkdsk c: /r" (no quotes) and hit Enter.
Worked for me yesterday solving the same exact HD problem.
the simple and easy method is to solve this error right click on the drive which shows the error go to the tools option and click on the error check after that options appear in front of you and search and fixed the problem automatically......
