(I have to mention that I was bussy transfering files from different externals to a new disk so I had them all hooked up.)
Well, yesterday I bought a new HD and after formating, I transfered files from old external disk and everything was normal.
Then I wanted to check condition of old hard disc with HDDScan-3.3. Program saw the drive but couldn't run SMART test.
Ok I thought, I'll give it another quick format and see if I could run test again.
I went to disk management and got a message that I had to initialize a disk before Logical Disk Management can access the disk.
I had the choice between MBR and GPT partition. Still thinking that message was about that old disk, and I wasn't sure what GPT partition was, I selected MBR and hit Ok.
That's when crap happened. In Disk Management I saw all of the sudden two (?) unallocated partitions that turned out to be my new 4 TB Seagte Expansion disk where I had about 2TB of precious data on.
My question is, can I get my external back to life without losing data on it? I'm running 64Bit Win. 10 Pro, my computer is clean. No virus or any other malware. I'm 100% sure.
Oh and, now I know what GPT partition is but I'm not sure why computer asked to convert partition style
Any help is greatly appreciated..
