I purchased this hard drive a few weeks ago. I initially plugged it into a USB port and installed it correctly. Everything was working fine as I transferred a couple of small files to the drive. Something happened and everything froze on my computer, so I restarted my computer and the hard drive has not shown up in My Computer since! I am not worried about losing any files from this drive (since I only transported a few and this happened during the FIRST time using the drive) so I will do anything to get this hard drive to work. When I open Disk Management it shows up as “Disk One: Not Initialized.” There is no black bar to the right displaying that it is “unallocated” or what not.
Then when I right click on the Disk 1 box in attempt to initialize the disk, this pops up.
I’ve been trying to work this out for days upon days. I wouldn’t be as bothered if I couldn’t fix it if it never worked, but it worked perfectly fine the first (and only) time I used it. Also, when I type “list disk” after accessing command prompt, Disk 1 is listed and the status says online but it says that the size is 0 GB and that there is 0 GB free (keep in mind that this is a 2 TB drive). There are so many forums similar to this one but I couldn’t seem to find any results. PLEASE, PLEASE help me.
