If you don't want to use a converter or are unsure about the reliability of them, I would suggest getting an external drive and backing your files up to it. Then you can reformat your other drive. Once the reformat is complete, simply copy your files back to it.

I don't have any other drive with me and as it is in FAT32 its taking very long time to copy.

So, I just need an assurance that its working fine without losing any data.

Hello, I am sorry to hear that you also get this external hard disk RAW file system error. Honestly, last time, after attaching my external hard disk to a PC, I do find my external hard disk has RAW file system and cannot be accessed, too. In order to rescue my left drive files and movies, I do tried many portable hard disk RAW error recovery methods and finally have recovered most of my original drive files back at the aid of external hard disk RAW file system recovery software.

Hence, you’d better also read more related data recovery articles and get clues here:

Hope these words work for you.
