I purchased an external disk WD 1To USB 3 ; it went fine so far but since a few days ago, when I connect it to y PC it is not recognised anymore.
I have tried a couple of workaround :
I have tried the disk on another PC => same results
I have changed the cable => same results
I have seen several posts on internet proposing to check the “manage computer” option but when I select the “manage disk” , I am being asked if I want to initialise the disk . I have not continued yet this step as I don’t know the consequence if I type OK. I have attached the screenshop below ; it is in french, but I think this should be undertsandable for non french.
Can anyone tell me what the risks are to “initialise” the disk ? Do I risk to lose the files currently stored on the disk ?
Can anyone suggest me anyther workaround to solve my problem ?
Thanks in advance for your help,
