So I have a WD My Passport Essential SE 1 TB hard drive that all of a sudden tells me it needs to be formatted.
So basically, when it is plugged in, every 10 seconds or so it disappears and then reappears with this pop-up message:
“You need to format the disk in drive E: before you can use it.
Do you want to format it?”
Obviously I don’t want to format it as that means I lose all my data.
Also, the hard drive doesn’t show on disk management.
I’m using windows 7.
By the way, I’m not really good at these, so if you have a technical solution, please give me as many detail as possible. Thank you!
