I have a 4 year old "WDC My passport Utra" 2 TB external hard drive that I use for archiving my files. When I plug in my PC last night, I get the message "You need to format the disk before you can use it". I've tried inserting it into another PC and getting
the same result. Is it possible to recover and restore data in it?
Disk management says: ROW, Healthy (Primary Partition). Screenshot: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkUoRLnQ86B_hGbSGxlKY5HVBH1a
I found dozens of similar questions in this forum with different situations, but I did not really understand the long discussions to get the answer I needed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
