Windows 7: Drive not working after chkdsk

Drive not working after chkdsk

So I noticed my storage drive receiving errors when torrenting (failure to write to disk) and lately I've been watching videos from the drive and they would freeze for seconds at a time. I ran chkdsk, it asked to unmount my drive, which I did, and now it won't recognize any data on it. It says it's got 1800GB capacity with 1800GB free, there should be at least 500GB worth of data used up. Here's a log of the chkdsk. in My Computer, the drive shows a blank where it usually shows the capacity and free space, and in disk partition it shows 100% free space. When I try to explore the drive it says I need to format the drive.

Chkdsk was executed in read/write mode.

Have you tried restarting your computer yet? It should remount the drive and it should work again.

Well, of course, using torrents via public access sites (not closed, corporate networks) is one of the best ways to get infected and so you should double ensure your system is clean.

Then if me, I would attempt to retrieve any data with Recuva from the makers of CCleaner, or similar program. Then I would run chkdsk /r (or Error Checking with all options selected) again and see what happens. If still errors, I would download the drive diagnostics from the drive maker's website. If errors, I would destroy the drive. Then never use torrents again.

Did a chkdsk on a drive, now MIA
Hey friends. I'll try and keep it short and simple. One of my drives - the 'F' drive - was having CRC errors so I figured I'd give it a better examination yesterday, and it seemed to be fine. If fixed a few errors, and for a 1 TB drive, I was surprised at how little was damaged. It took a while...
