I have a WD My passport 3 TB drive I have been using for backups.
I am having issues with it, sometimes I can plug it in, as I did last night, all files and folders showing and I used macrium reflect and did a backup of my data.
However I look at it this morning and first it shows the drive but shows it as empty, nothing in it, but it is not because I have had this happen before. Then when I tried to open it a message pops up tells me I need to format the drive, which of course I do not do.
Now Windows 7 does not show the drive at all in My computer or computer management.
As said I have had this issue before and then another time it will work but I am both frustrated and worried I will lose all my data.
