  4. Hard Drive has a ? in file explorer.

    Cannot find (Seagate) external hard drive in File Explorer.

    Thank you, Billion, for all the help. Unfortunately, the drive still doesn't show up in File Explorer. The computer recognizes it, and reads that the external hard drive is working properly. However, I still can't access anything inside it.
