So, I have several physical SATA HDs that I use with Windows 7 Ult. 64-bit. C (OS), D, F, G, H.
All of a sudden, Windows does not see the G drive. It shows up in My Comp., but does not have any properties; the other drives say New Volume (C) x-GB free of x-GB
, whereas the G drive now only says G and nothing else. If I double-click it, I get a message saying that the drive needs to be formatted before it can be used.
I removed the HD and put it into an enclosure. All of the data is there, and I am actually copying everything to a BU drive right now.
The question is, what do I need to do to get Windows to recognize the HD? If ultimately I can't, it's no biggie, as I will have all of the data on another HD, so nothing is lost. But I would like to just put it back in, and do whatever I need to do to get Win to see it properly.
Oh, and sorry i this is not in the right forum, wasn't sure where this should go. feel free to move.
Thank you in advance.
