Running Windows 7 64 bit.
I’ve had this for about a year now. I’m not using the WD software, just the drive itsself. It’s reformatted into 2 partitions and has been rock solid until today.
I went into it to play some music and it showed all my folders, but empty. The few bare files that weren’t in folders showed up normally. Ran a virus scan and it scanned the visible files but nothing in the “empty” folders. The drive showed about 3/4 full in My Computer. I turned off the computer, unplugged the drive and waited for a few minutes and then restarted. Now Windows is showing it with the drive letter I assigned it, but can’t access it to do anything with it.
I’m guessing the mbr got corrupted somehow or something? Are there any tools or command line programs to try to repair the file system, mbr or whatever it is that’s gotten corrupted?
There’s at least a terabyte of irreplacable information on the drive that I would really like to get off. Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to offer.
