I had my external hard drive attached to my laptop and the USB wire came out whilst it was still connected and now all my data on the drive is inaccessible, error message… G:\ is not accessible, The parameter is incorrect.
Also, when I click on the drive it keeps on saying “you need to format the disk in drive G: before you can use it”
I haven’t done this as don’t want to lose all my files but cannot retrieve anything!
Also in the WD Smartware program it doesn’t show the drive at all.
What can I do to retrieve my data? It has got all of my old photos, music etc on it and I must get it back
Hope you can help!!!
