    Try disconnecting power to the portable drive for an hour, then try again.

    Not exactly.. its saying there is 17 gigs used.. if it was totally wiped accidentally it would say 597gigs free.. that is a little concerning. Check your recycling bin? otherwise check it for errors.

    Right click on it
    Properties
    Tools
    Error Checking

    Maybe the partition is damaged
