Could you please provide us with a little more information.

What do you mean by it is corrupted?

Are you using this for storage or do you have a operating system loaded on it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

its for storage.

it was working one moment. then when I restarted my computer, it detected a problem and performed an automatic disk check and "fixed" it.

now, when i click on it, i get a message box that says "the disk is corrupted and not readable"

The messages says that the disk is corrupted...not the file system?
