Hi, I am using Windows 8 and using a Transcend 1TB External Hard Drive.
Until recently it has worked fine, showing in My Computer as G:Transcend.
This last day it has started showing as G: Local Disk
It has a dual head on the USB so I cannot try it on any other port and I have yet to try it on any other computer.
When I try to access it from My Computer it says that I need to format it.
Looking at the properties in Device Manager - it tells me I have the best drivers and they are all up to date and the device is working properly.
Using EaseUSDataRecovery shows me that the files are still on the drive.
I am also having virus problems but am not sure whether this is related.
