No Viruses on machine, and it appears to have lost it's partition ?? Evesham Technical support suggested after recovering software should format disk. I managed to recover my data using a program I bought and have backed this up. Not happy that something might be wrong with this drive & as it stores 186 GBytes of my valuable photos, installed a New Hitachi 400 GB Sata Drive. (identical to 1st 400GB drive)
Right Clicking on My Computer and Manage, you can see the drive as "active" and "healthy", but you can't access it. Have tried formatting it 4-5 times. It seems to do something, takes forever, but never completes it successfully.
I don't have any idea what to try next? What can I try if Windows XP won't format it?
I am a Mum and not at all technical, and would greatly appreciate any help or ideas you could give me.
Thanks, eagerly await your help !. Warm regards
