Solved Cannot access external hard drive

July 31, 2017 at 07:56:18
Specs: Windows 10
I have connected my ADATA superior93 into my computer and the blue light comes on indicating its on and you can feel its up and running.

However I cant get into the drive on the computer.
I have checked device manager and its shows up there saying its working fine and drivers are up to date.
even in i can see the drive and the amount of space used and free space but i simply cannot get in and access what is on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

✔ Best Answer
Check the drive in Windows Disk Management. If it is listed there, post here, all the information listed for the drive.

Improper, premature removal (unplugging or shutting off) of a USB external drive will corrupt the file system. In that case, the drive is not broken, the data is still present but it can't be accessed. If the file type is listed as RAW then you probably can repair the file system.

Test disk can repair the damage to the partition file system. Get testdisk at the link below. Be sure to read the tutorials BEFORE using.
