So I have an external HD that I keep some files on and one day I noticed it wasn't showing up in my computer, I figured that the cord fell out or something and I ignored it. Now, today I needed a file on it so I went to plug it in and I noticed it was already in, I thought thats weird so I turned it off and on. Then it showed up with the message
You need to format the disk in drive K: before you can use it
If I got to properties, it shows that it has 0 data on it but I know there are files on there. The only option it gives me is to format or cancel and cancel doesn't help and I don't want to lose my files.
