Reinstalled win7 and no I have to fromat a previously functioning HDD
Nov 18, 2012, 3:04 PM
Just reinstalled windows 7 on my main drive and noticed that one of my other HDD didnt have a name and when i clicked on it I got the "You need to format..." error message.
The strange thing is that it work perfect before I reinstalled windows.
The HDD model is a Seagate st3000dm001-9yn166 3TB drive.
Any ideas how to fix it?
