I loaded my drive in BackTrack 5 Linux KDE and had copied a few pdf files over. Afterwards I had loaded my win 7 partition on my internal HD and receive message to either format the drive or cancel it. Will not recognize as passport.
I’ve not had this problem as I never had a problem going from BackTrack 4 RTS/5 KDE or Ubuntu 10 RTS to Windows 7 64bit. I have alot of very important data on my portable with only about 15% of it backed up on my desktop and 10% on my laptop. Is there anyway to get this to be recognized in windows again without reformatting it.
I think my BackTrack 5 is setup in FAT32 partition while the portable drive, Ubuntu and windows 7 are in NTFS but as I said I’ve never had a problem going back and forth with the drive. I ran a test on it in Ubuntu and it says that it has passed assesment, noting that it has 3 bad sectors. The partition type is HPFS/NTFS (0x07), Device is /dev/sdb1 (Currently testing on Ubuntu 10.10 RTS virtual machine. In the VM’s add/remove removable devices section it reads it as WD My Passport 071A.
