Windows 7: Hard Drive 1 unllocated.

16 May 2014   #1

Hard Drive 1 unllocated.

Hello I have been having a problem with my 1tb Lacie(not the grey porches) and the letter of the drive shows up but when I click it wants me to format.When I went to Disk Management most of the hard is healthy but there a small partition that has "1 Unallocated" and when I right click nothing is available to press.

This is a drive that I have lots of data on it and I don't want to lose any but I think it's corrupted and I wonder why that "1 Unallocated" out of the whole drive can't be fixed.Can anyone help?
