Out of the blue, one of my WD external drives started kicking back “Local Drive”, disk management said it was RAW data, and the data was inaccessible. After a few days of looking/researching/reading I was about to give up. Many places just said format the drive and hope for the best.
Uhh, no, I don’t want to lose the data.
More research, and I found a program that fixed the RAW data problem, and now in the process of copying the data to what I know is a fully functioning drive. It’s on an older USB 2 drive so it will take a while to get 1.8tb shifted, but at least I can get it done.
