My laptop recently crashed and I had everything backed up on my Essential. While my laptop is being repaired, I used another laptop to attempt to access my files stored on the external. Windows did the usual “your device is installed and ready to use” but I could not find the external in My Computer. In disk management, I located the drive and it said that the space was “unallocated.” I take this to mean my drive has somehow become unpartitioned?
My only copies of many files are on that Essential and I do not want to reformat it. Is there any way I can salvage data from it?
