I've used my Toshiba external hard disk 3.0 1TB for a while already but suddenly it doesn't appear on my computer.
It does show up in the device manager.
I tried re-install it again but it said the device cannot be installed properly..
I'm currently using windows 7 32bit.
I've tried chkdsk on the command promp too but it said that "cannot open volume for direct access".
So, can anyone help me solving this? I can't format it coz I got really important stuff in it.
Next I would try Recuva ( http://www.piriform.com/recuva ) to get the important files, and then never rely on an external drive again for important backup. Just scan this forum and see how many have these kinds of issues.
