Dropped Harddrive now wants to format in XP works normal for Win7
This week i knocked my external hard drive off the desk :@
When plugged back into my desktop running xp it prompts me to format the hard drive, which i will not do as ive got a fair bit of software and images on there etc. So i thought id try plugging into one the the winsows 7 unmanaged machines we have lying around, and it autoran, opened up and the work was there working all fine.
So....what the hell is going on???
I even in a last ditch effort to get it running again clicked format in xp, only to be prompted that windows was unable to format the drive, its acting under xp as the drive is completely shot, yet in 7 working normally.
Can anyone shed some light on this...?
