USB Hard Drive no longer appears in "My Computer" Help please
(Sorry if this has already been answered; I'm new)
Today at college I tried to continue my work by plugging in my USB hard drive and it simply wouldn't appear in "My Computer".
When I tried later on that day it would appear as a "Removable Disk" but I was unable to double click it.
The technicians at my college said that I need to format it, but when I tried to create a backup last week it was unsuccessful so it would mean losing all of my college work.
Is there a way I can at least access the hard drive to get to the contents?
