Hi guys, I’m new here and I just registered to find a solution for my problem, let’s get to the issue
I have a WD elements external drive and I used it as backup for my old data since maybe 2014.
I tried to format my laptop which is old but still working and I found a link in Microsoft to download and reinstall Windows 10 but it asked to either download the files on a usb drive that is not less than 8GB or to start the process right a way which I suppose to choose, but I thought it would be good idea to save the files to use it later and I chose to save them on my WD drive, no problem so far but I chose to Not to keep my files thinking of cleaning the pc and get fresh copy of windows. The process deleted all my data on the WD drive that is over 50GB and the worst and biggest problem it erased the capacity of the drive which was 1 terabyte to only 32 GB and I don’t know why ?
regarding the data I know there are many software’s to recover but I’m so worry about the drive size
is it possible to get it back and how ?
Appreciate any positive reply soonest
