Sometimes when a drive is disconnected without safely removing a file becomes corrupted and Windows flags the drive as "unreliable" (so to speak) by setting a single hex value for the drive as "dirty". Thus "the dirty bit".

To check if this is so, open an elevated Command Prompt and then type " fsutil dirty query m: " (with m being the drive letter for the external drive. This will tell you if the drive is marked dirty.

If it is, then do this: open the Command Prompt and type: " CHKNTFS /X m:
" . This will tell Windows NOT to check the drive on the next restart. Then manually restart the computer (keep the external connected).

Welcome to the Forum.

You want to fix it without formatting?
Is it a USB external disk?

Why do you want to use eFat? Do you use it on Mac?

WesDigital is the external hdrive 4TB and it was preformatted to exfat32
if you could come up with any solution that would be great.

chkdsk is reporting error (see picture attached)

As you're not going to use on a MAC, my suggestion:
- Copy all your data to another disk.
- Open disk management and delete ALL partitions then create new (GPT) - format it as NTFS.
It will create a GPT disk formatted as NTFS.
Restore your data to it.
External disks are very fragile. Only place horizontally on a flat surface. Don't move it when connected (spinning).

dude

MegaHz, thanks but should i wanted to do that, i would've already done it. the idea is not to migrate data as simply i have no time nor free data storage to move it to. there must be a solution to this issue other than formatting it.

That is why I asked and you didn't reply.
Did you try the WD tools? Testing a drive for problems using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows | WD Support
