External hard Drive issues
Posted on 2009-04-16
I have an external Maxtor 1 TB hard drive. Recently my laptop (Dell - M90, Windows XP SP2) stopped seeing it correctly. When I go to device manager, it is listed correctly. In the Disk management, it only sees 321GB. It shows the remaining 609 GB as unallocated.
When I try to access it from windows explorer, it asks me if I want to format the drive. If I connect the same hard drive to a different computer, it sees everything correctly. I used this drive on this computer within the last month without problems. Any idea what the issue may be?
