    Look in disk management to verify drive letter, file system etc.
    You may have to recover partition & files
    Search online for data recovery software to download.
  2. http://www.easeus.com/download.htm there is a free version of he recovery software from them that works well.

    Don't keep only a single copy of your files on the external drive, use the external drive as a backup of files on your computer. Or backup the files on the external drive somewhere else at least.
