I have a 40 gig external hard drive which I use for backing up some of my files. I use the "Second Copy" program to automatically backup certain files. It seems the external hard drive filled up without my realizing it and now it will not open.

When I attempt to open it I get a message which says: "Disk G is not formatted - do you want to format it now?"

I've tried disconnecting it from the power source and usb connection and then reconnecting, but it still doesn't allow me to open it.

When I go to properties for the external drive, it shows it is full on the pie chart but shows 0 bytes.

Any suggestions?
