Hey guys/girls I seem to be having a little problem (well actually its a big problem) with one of my hard drives. Ii is a 10 giger and I have been using it for about a year now. About 3 months ago I went to open it (I store all my music in there) and it showed like there was nothing in there however it still showed that 8 gigs had been used up ( or whatever the ratio was). I rebooted my comp but when it came back on and I tried to open it again, this time it said : drive E has not been formated would you like to reformat . I chose no at first and tried a whole bunch of programs to restore the music that I knew was still hiding, the best I could do was recover bits and pieces of the 3000+ songs in there. I decided that I was screwed and just hit yes to reformat. I used it again for about 3 months (don't ask me why I even risked it) and again today when I went to open it, it did the same would you like to reformat thing. I did notice that while all my other drives (when everything is working right) say: local disk c: or local disk d:, my E drive reads LOCIL disk e:, now again this is when it is working properly. Now that it gives me the reformat option, ALL my drives say: local disk, including E. Ok now that my long story is over, CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME. Why would my drive be named like that then how could it rename its self? Anything anyone can do would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot guys/girls.
