Okay, so I was trying to change my External hard drive that is a FAT32 to an NTFS. I saved all my stuff on to my internal hard drive, then deleted everything contained inside. Afterwards, I followed these steps in this link below
It states to "Right-click on the drive you are changing (make sure it is the right drive), and choose "Delete Partition"."
Me being as dumb as I am... I right clicked the external and saw "Delete Volume" and it made my hard drive disappear completely. Is there anyone that knows how I can have it reappear? I replug it in and i see that it is recognized as a USB device in the "Device Manager." I still cant find a way for it to appear as a new hard drive though. I'll be doing research to try and find the problem, but if anyone has any solutions I'd much appreciate it. Thanks in advance
