I have Windows7 (64 bit). I tried to connect an USB external hard drive and the disk shows up in the system tray (Safely Remove the Hardware). But under my computer it will not show. I went to the Computer Management under the Disk Management I could see the disk. But it says, it is Unallocated and it has to be Initialized. I have lot data in the disk. Can I still initialize the disk? Or how can I make the computer to understand my external hard drive without the lose of any data?
I need the data very much so erasing it is not so much of an option if I can.
