My external hard drive is not showing up on my explorer or in my devices. I left it plugged in while i updated on accident. So i need to figure out how i can get it back up and running and if i lost all my data that was on that external hard drive. I dont have any boot disks available or anything to try and reload any drivers... PLEASE HELP!!!!
i tried it in my old laptop and it shows it but i cant access it. Im running windows 8.1 and ive read a lot of similar issues. I also dont have a disc drive on my laptop so when i updated it was via internet.
well cloning is good option for it, through which it will act as secondary drive, i think it is possible way out for it. The use of drive manager software is healthy activity for anyone to avoid uncertain situation.
And the last option is data recovery software or services i think, like Disk Doctors external hard drive recovery software.
what do you mean "cloning" i cant access the hard drive at all to get anything off of it or change anything and it says the driver is up to date. Ive uninstalled the device and plugged it back in and still nothing.
