Question about Laptop Parts & Accessories
When I try getting into my Local Disk (E:) I get
WDWD Pas.spo 12/24/2048 12:00am
THUMBS. D 360,498kb 10/20/2008 12:00am
When I click on WDWD Pas.spo I receive the following error message:
E:\WDWD Pas.spo refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.
This drive worked fine till 9:30pm on Sunday evening. When I went to use it on MOnday morning I was unable to call the drive up.
Is it possible to recover the data on the drive?
Have you tried anything which is used to lock the folders,i mean FOLDER LOCK software

Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.
Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.

Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.
Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."
