Hi, I have a 500 GB WD Elements 1023. And whenever I try plugging it in, the scan and fix option pops up, after googling a bit, people recommended to use chkdsk instead of running the scan and fix option.
So I did, here's what I got with the chkdsk command:
After it showed some problems, I ran it again with the /f or fix attrib. and here's what I got:
And btw, these scans took me a little while (around 1-3 mins) before it was done. Maybe it has something to do with the available space on my drive, I have 66GB free out of 500GB. Now I can't copy, paste, or even delete any file on my external hard drive.
There are some very important files on my external hard drive, and I cant afford to lose all my work.
I really need help on this one guys. Can you give me any suggestions what options do I have to save this drive? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much kind sirs and madams.
