Hi...I have read a few forums about this but my situation is a little different. I have been using 'My Passport' for 2 years-ish and have never had an issue, i store everything in there because i need all my manuals available everywhere I go...so a few weeks ago I plugged it in and it did not open as usual...It also did not show up in it 'normal' position in my pc (see attachment "This PC") it shows up as 'Local Disk (E:)' but used to be 'My Passport'
I am a little computer savy so i started to investigate fearing that it was wiped out because i did not 'safely remove hardware' (which by the way is not enabled)
I searched and tried a few diagnosic things then finally got an error "E:\ is not accessible. Data error (cyclic redundancy check)" so i started trying to fix the CRC but the things various forums suggested didn't fix the issue like others, i was getting different outcomes...i even tried to delete my device and reinstall driver...did nothing...tried updating driver...did nothing...the further i looked i also found as if my passport was cleaned out? (see attachment "Disk Management") my E: has 100% available space
hopefully someone here has a solution
