Hello,

I have a 1TB western digital external hard drive. i make it in 2 partitions using the paragon partition. when i plug it to the other computer with a norton partition magic installed on it, a message appeared and it says "this hard drive has an error please click OK to fix it.. and i clicked it. in that moment it was running and later on disconnected it from the USB.. unfortunately when i replugged it again it wont work, its undetected. but its appear in safely remove button only it didnt appear in the "my computer". and the volume of this hard drive is unreadable.

The other problem is when it is connected in the USB its like some applications are jam because its hanging and i didnt even close my computer or starting up when it is connected. thanks in advance for the any help.

Can you see the disk under "Disk Management"?

Is the error you clicked yes to fix it reported by your OS or by partition magic?

Or you may use some tool to see whether files can be restored when your usb is not recognized. http://www.icare-recovery.com/howto/recover-data-partit...

Thanks for replying.. no it wont appear in the disk management. Yes i clicked yes to fix it and it is reported by portable norton partition magic. i tried to used some recovery tools unfortunately the disk didn't appeared so i cant try to recover it.
