    Windows 10 was unable to access my Samsung HDD due to corruption issues so with the aid of "FindandMount" I rescued all the data and reformatted the drive. What files (if any) do I need to add to the drive to restore its functionality?

    My thanks in advance for any help offered. May I just add that I am at an advanced age and absolutely no sort of techie.

    If you've reformatted the drive and Windows can see it, there won't be any need to install additional files to get the drive working.

    Thank you, lochlomonder. That's rather what I suspected but it's good to have it confirmed.
