I have a BUFALLO USB 3:0 1tb external HDD which cant be initialized in computer management
It all started when the HDD didn't appear on my computer i have tried several tricks but none of them worked.
It was working fine but after a night it suddenly stopped working.

Try removing the drive from its enclosure and connecting it directly to a SATA port on your computer's motherboard.

Can HD Sentinel see the model number of the drive inside the enclosure?
