Drive formated in NTFS but now file system is showing RAW. Why?
WD Element 500G external USB drive
The drive is 1.5 years old and was formated in NTFS. Now I am unable to mount the drive which acts as if it turning itself on and of. Unable to see files on drive. In properties all parematers such as file space and free space are 0. The file sytem is now RAW.
How can I bring this back to NTFS without formatting and loosing my information? How can I prevent this from happening again? What is the root cause?
Is this a good question?
