The disk check could not performed because windows cannot access the disk external hard drive
My computer recognizes my Toshiba External hard drive when going thru Control Panel - Computer Management etc.... but I am getting an I/O error if I try to open a- and the message below when I try to check it for errors.
"The disk check could not performed because windows cannot access the disk"
Is there a way to over ride this and try to recover the files without spending $$$. I have purchased a new external drive - but would like to transfer some of these files to it if at all possible.
Any help and ideas would be fgreatly appreciated. I am just a little computer savvy, so try to keep it somewhat simple
