  2. Repair an external hard drive connected to Windows 10

    Hello Jeff,

    You may try running Disk Error Checking and the CHKDISK tool to help you repair your external hard disk. Both tools are designed to fix errors on your disk. Make sure that you're signed in as administrator before performing
    these steps:

    Run Disk Error Checking

    • Plug in your external hard disk.
    • Open File Explorer by pressing the
      Windows keys button + E
      .
    • Go to This PC.
    • Right-click your external hard disk under Devices and drives.
    • Select Properties
    • Go to Tools tab.
    • Under Error checking, click Check.
    • If prompted, click Yes or enter the administrator password.
    • Click Scan drive > Repair drive.
    • Wait for the process to finish.
    • The scanning process may take a while depending on the size of your external hard disk and the specifications of your PC.

    Run the CHKDSK tool

    • Plug in your external hard disk.
    • Click the Start button.
    • Type Command Prompt.
    • Right-click Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator.
    • On the Command Prompt screen, type the command below:
      • chkdsk <drive letter>: /f
    • <driver letter> would be the letter assigned to your external hard disk.
      • For example: chkdsk E: /f
    • Do take note of the spaces between the command.
    • Again, the scanning process duration depends on the size of the external hard disk and your PC's specifications.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    If you think this was useful, you may “mark it as an answer” to help those who are facing the same problem.

  3. External Hard disk contents are not visible.

    Hi Pranoti,

    For us to narrow down your concern with your external hard disk, we would like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue (e.g., updates, software installation)?
    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Do you hear any clicking sound when connecting your hard disk?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you update all your device driver.

    We look forward to your response.
