I haven’t posted here in a while. Truth be told, I forgot I had joined and sought out help. Sorry!
Well, I’ve posted my problem in several other forums with not much help. I’m getting a bit frustrated and ready to just throw my drive out the window.
I’ve been trying to fix my external hard drive. It’s a My Book Premium Edition. Originally, it had files on it…but all were deleted (except a few password protected files.) I didn’t know the password, so someone suggested to try reformatting the drive anyway. The reformatting didn’t finish and had errors; then, I couldn’t even save files to the drive. Next, I was told to delete the volume, unplug, replug and format the drive. So I did. HOWEVER when I plugged my drive back in, my computer wouldn’t recognize it…so I can’t format it.
Interestingly enough, I decided to plug it into my sister’s computer. (Her computer has Windows 7; I have Windows Vista.) Her computer recognizes the drive, but as QuickData Y: and Quickbooks X:
What should I do? I don’t understand what is going on with it. Should I just hard wipe it? (Although, I don’t think I can if my computer won’t read the drive…)
