    External HardDrive Problem (please help Windows updates erasing external harddrive :( )

    Try this:

    1) Insert your flash/external drive into the USB port.

    2) When you see the AutoPlay dialog box, click Cancel.

    3) Open My Computer, right-click your flash drive icon, and select Properties.

    4)In the Properties dialog box, select the AutoPlay tab.

    5) Perform the following steps for each item in the Content Type drop-down list:
    > Select an item in the Content Type drop-down list.
    > Choose Select An Action To Perform in the Actions panel.
    > Select the Open Folder To View Files In Windows Explorer action.
    > Click the Apply button.
    > Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

    Now use the Safely Remove Hardware feature to remove your flash drive — wait a moment and plug it back in. You’ll see the AutoPlay progress appear momentarily, and then you should see Windows Explorer open to show the contents of the flash drive.
