566102, External USB Drive Now Says 'Not Initialized'
Posted by Lance of SD, Wed Aug-14-19 06:41 AM
I've been playing around with a sick desktop Win 7 computer. While fiddling with it, one of the external drives slipped and fell about a foot or so onto a relatively soft surface, BUT, now the drive says it is 'Not Initialized.' I don't want to lose the data on this drive. It was a standard NTFS drive. Can I savely initialize the drive? If not, what do I do?
