I have had a Western Digital 2TB external drive for a while now with no problems until few months back. I have the the HDD separated into 3 drives (G:, H:, and I:). Few months back one of my folders in I: was not opening and was saying I had to format it. It was strange because it was just the one folder in I: that wasn’t working while everything else worked fine. It sucked to have to lose all the files in that folder, but I needed the space. I reformatted and it seemed ok. Then recently, I was not able to copy files or create a new folder in drive I:. I started worrying and wanted to move some files to drive H: to be safe.
Today I was going to move some files from my laptop on to drive H:, and now it’s not opening at all. It doesn’t show how much space is used on H: or anything else. When I double click the drive to try and open it, I normally get a Windows Explorer is nor responding notice or that I need to format the drive. I have some VERY important photos and videos on the drive and I’m panicking a bit. Is there any way to fix this, or is it repairable possibly? Help would be greatly appreciated
