H:\ is not accessible.
The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.
I booted on BartPE and the result is the same. It also can't read the External HDD properly.
So I tried different partition software to fix it.
Partition Recovery can't find any problem.
Then I tried Partition Master's explorer. It detects the hard drive but the explorer shows it as empty at first.
I tried different things on Partition Master and found out that removing the Drive Letter makes the contents of my HDD appear on Partition Master's explorer. But it is basically just a list and I can only view but not do anything.
I read different forums and read about TestDisk.
It allowed me to list the files and copy them which assures me that my HDD is working.
Plugged it on my brother's Macbook and it was able to detect it with no problem.
It was working properly until Checkdisk supposedly fixed it. Now I can't use my external HDD properly since I can't save on it and open it using explorer.
I want to copy the files to another hard drive and just format it but I don't have enough space to save all of the files.
How do I fix it so that XP will start detecting my External USB HDD it properly again?
