I am glad that you were able to get your problem resolved.
I want to thank you for posting back that a CHKDSK resolved the problem. Many suggestions posted in this forum never get a response (neither yea nor nay), which does not help others looking for a solution to a similar problem.
So again thanks.
Not logically shut down an external device can definitely cause problems. Since you indicate that you logically shut down your external drive, I don't quite understand what would have caused the original problem. If the problem should reoccur see if you can determine any pattern of cause and effect.
Again thanks for posting a response!!!
