I got a strange problem yesterday. Yesterday I connected my external hard disk to my Windows 10 computer to restore some file I had backed up previously. My PC is a bit slow and took long time to open the file I needed.So, I tried to close the Window and computer stuck.So, I restarted the PC and accessed to external hard disk. There was nothing. I connected it to another computer to check. It also didn't show anything. So ,I left it for a sometime and checked again.. all the file were there and hard disk was working fine.If someone know, could you please what was happening there?
