Can't access Seagate external drive

#1 Post by lexie016 »

I cannot access my external drive. It was working fine, but now when I plug it in, windows is saying that the disk needs to be formatted. It's been accidentally unplugged without first safely removing it, could that be why? Anyhow I have tons of photos & music stored on it, I really don't want to lose anything & unfortunately the only copies I have are on my external drive. I'm not sure how to use this program, so any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
