I have a removable 120GB USB hard drive that I use to backup some of my data on my server that does not get backed up off site. I have never had an issue untill today. When the drive is plugged in it shows up in my computer with a red question mark on it. When I go into Disk management handled by Dell Openmanage it shows Disk 1 Healthy Status Ready, Capacity 114 GB unalocated space 2.70 GB. If I right click on that and go to properties is reconizes everything. Now under disk 1 it shows New Volume Y, the status is healthy and unalocated space is 111.7 gb. I made the drive letter Y and formated the drive using NTFS and left the name as New volume. If I right click on this and go to properties it says filesystem unknown and free space 0 and used space 0.
I have marked the partition as active and formated it and changed the drive leter. All won't allow the drive to be used.
