    This is crazy..

    Ok so I reset my computer not too long ago, and I must've had my external drive plugged in because now my computer sees it as a system drive. I literally have 2 different versions of "Download, Documents, etc" and things get moved, deleted, and messed with all the time. I don't know what to do. I have PGP keys getting deleted and stuff like that can NOT be happening. Anybody have any idea what's going on. Any help is greatly appreciated because I just got everything up and running how I like it, and things installed again. I'd rather not have to reset my computer AGAIN.

    Thanks for listening guys,



    PS I have Windows 10 20H2

    :)

  2. External HDD recognized as system I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!

    Hey guys,
    so I reset my computer recently. I had my external harddrive plugged in when windows was being installed. Now it wont do certain things without being connected, and I can't access certain files (even files like Documents, Pictures, etc). For some reason it'll still boot up into windows, but everything else seems tied to this external. It works when It's not plugged in too though, but I can't access ANYTHING.

    This is a pic of the error message I get:

    I don't understand. I've NEVER seen this problem before. If you could help, or even steer towards the direction of where I could get help I would be extremely grateful.

    Thanks for listening and hope to hear from you soon,

    Shane

    Windows won't recognize my usb 3.0 external HDD

    Hi,

    I have 1TB transcend USB 3.0 external HDD.
    Windows did recognized it but no more.

    Here is what I've tried:
    1. Different OS: Ubuntu doesn't recognize it either
    2. Different computer: my Android device and another PC I have With Windows 10 do recognize it
    3. BIOS settings tried with/without legacy support
    4. Uninstalling the driver (picture attached) it's Microsoft generic since there is no driver to 9BC1 for Windows 10 http://pcidatabase.com/search.php?device_search_str=9cb1&device_search=Search
      [*]USB selective suspend setting disabled in power options
      [*]Regedit to the driver path and change EnhancedPowerManagementEnabled (it doesn't exist)
      http://windowsreport.com/usb-3-0-ext...ve-windows-10/


    My PC is HP Spectre x360 4003dx.
    I'm kinda of clueless right now.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Roey

    External HDD not recognized

    Your Toshiba must be "KaPut" as Toshiba HDD are notorious for failure! I had an external 2015
    Model: HDTB110AK3BA Canvio Basics 3.0 Plus 1TB and it gave up after only 3 months of usage. There is not much you can do except do the following:

    1) Don't open it

    2) Don't do anything that they suggest online to fix HDD's as it will break yours!

    3) Take it to a renowned HDD specialist that will properly retrieve your data (if it can be done so?) and you will get all you data back.

    Note: To take a HDD to have its data properly retrieved will cost you probably more than the HDD is worth but, if your data is worth it, then do it.
