WTF is it with my external drives???

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.
