Hi to all,
My 1TB WD hard drive was accidentally removed from my laptop without safety ejecting.
When I reconnect it to my laptop, it says that the drive needs to be formatted. I don't want to format it.
So I searched the internet to find a solution and I found this one that leads me here.
Because I followed all the instructions in it carefully. I found my files .. written it .. I can even copy the files via testdisk.
But after rebooting, it seems that the external hard drive still can't be read by my laptop. It's really a pain.
My question is, can I still use my external hard drive like it's normal again?
Can I just backup the files in it and then format it to NTFS?
It's just almost a year old. My father is going to kill me if he find out what happened. Please help.
