Hi O wiser ones than me!
I have made a terrible mistake! I went into administrative tools, changed my slave drive to a dynamic disk. That, as i now know, unmounted it. When I changed it back - "This drive is not formatted - do you want to format it now?"
NO! NO! Noooo! All my work, all my music, all my projects - every document, everything, is on my 120gslave drive.
is there ANYTHING i can do to access the contents of the drive so that I can transfer it to my main drive - or so that it can stay where it is.
It is/was formatted as Basic Partition NTFS. I use Windows WP SP3.
The reason I did it in the first place was my slave drive has a glitch that sometimes causes my pc to reboot - at least 2X per day. There is no virus, the fault is with the drive, which I got corrupted but with no bad sectors. I was trying something new to sort out a problem that would be better addressed by getting another SATA hard drive.
A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing - and this tragedy was self-inflicted, unknowing. I am gutted!
Is there anything I can do to be able to retrieve my work? Can it be done....
