My computer is not recognizing files on my WD external drive. The drive is about 1/2 full. It will see some folders, but not always files within the folders. The blue rings are constantly going around.
My screen saver images come from a folder from the WD drive. When the computer goes into standby now, there is a black screen stating that there are no photos in that folder.
This is the error I am getting:
"Windows - Delayed Write Failed
Windows was unable to save all the fdata for the file K:$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Pelase try to save this file elsewhere."
I’ve not asked the drive or my computer to save anything. I’ve restarted both computer and hard drive. Problem remains. I am running a virus scan now.
Has anyone had this happen? Is there any hope of recovery?
My kids lives are documented (or were) on that drive!
