I am unable to access my external Toshiba hard drive on my PC despite being able to do so for over a year. I note from Data Manager / Device Manager that the data is now changed to a RAW format instead of NTFS which I have read is related to a fault due to not stopping the drive correctly at some point ( can't recall doing so but its happened ). I can see the files when I have used a programme recommended elsewhere but repartitioning wasn't possible when attempted. The drive does however work fine and I can access it on a Dell laptop using Win 10. Logitech Brio Drivers Windows 10. Any ideas on how to access the files ( mostly photos ) on the PC again?
I could until this morning when the files changed to RAW on the Dell too! I now have the same problem on the Dell laptop ie I can see the drive listed in Device Manager under ' Disk drives ' and under Disk Management it is listed as Drive E but with RAW as the file type now and the disk is showing as empty of files ie disk space = 931.51 GB and free space = 931.51 GB. The drivers are up to date. I tried chkdsc via 'Properties' but it tells me that 'Windows can't access the disk'. I managed to get some of the files off yesterday before it changed to RAW but not all of them.
