I have a 1TB Iomega external Hard Drive, that quit working yesterday. I have no idea why it stopped working. It shows up on disk manager, and my computer.

I know that I have at least 70GB of data on the drive. When I try to open the drive it asks me to reformat the drive.

On the disk manager its says its healthy and working properly. It shows 931.51GB of 1000GB are free. Its shows the file system as raw.

In my computer its shows up as "local disk k:"

When I right click, and go to properties to the "error checking" button. When I click that the screen comes up to begin, and the goes away after I click start.

anyone have any suggestions?
