  2. Backup on external HD

    I have several external HD units for backup.

    All units turn on was accessible in computer and ready for backup via SyncToy.

    In Win 10 the external HD sowed op the first two days. Then disappeared one by one.

    All discs had its own drive letter.

    Now only one external HD is accessible.

    Wil that HD disappear too.

    HD Partitions visible but no file table?

    I've lost my data, my secondary HD, partitions are visible in Explorer but can't access the files.

    -> What happens when you try?

    -> Do you have any backup on an external medium?
