Re: computer will not recognize my external drive

Hello,

 

I had this same problem in the past. You can either reformat it or use a disk utility program such as diskpart to bring it back on line. I If not familiar with the option write back for details. Easiest option is reformat unless you need some items on it.

Subject: [TechTalk] computer will not reconize my external drive

 

I replaced my computer hard drive with an SSD drive and put the old SATA drive in a drive enclosure to use for data storage. I deleted the recovery partitions and I guess I missed a step and now when I connect the drive to computer it dings but does not show up. Is there anyway to fix  this?
