USB backup drive enclosure fails, new adaptor shows drive not initialized
Posted on 2013-06-13
Hi - on my backup USB drive the female insert snapped off, so I bought a SATA/IDE to USB adapter. I removed the backup SATA drive from the enclosure attached to the new adapter and now my Windows 7 (64 bit) OS tells me the drive is not initialized. On first insert a window popped up asking if I wanted to initialize, and I hit "cancel".
I have data on the drive that I need. What can I do?
