sorry for my bad english… I use WD My passport essential 500GB
last friday, i tried to install a camera driver into my pc and I didnt plug out my ext. WD HD. It kept disconnect and connect several times and made some ticking sound. So I plug out my ext. WD HD.
and the next day, when I tried to use my ext HD, suddenly nothing was there. The drive that I used and always stated as
my passport j:/
but now, it stated local disk j:/ with nothing inside.
I right clicked on it and it shows used/free space as 0 and file system is RAW.
I tried to check it on computer management > disk management, nothing is there but I can format it.
The problem thing is, if I format it, will it be possible for me to retrieve ALL my data? including flv., psd., ppt, pptx, jpeg, and so on???
Is there another way for me by not formatting it?
