Question about Western Digital Elements powered by WD 320 GB External USB (WDE1U3200N) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Data Vanished I have a WD 250 GB external HDD , and all data has just vanished off of it , as if someone had formatted it. No one has touched the harddrive it just happened one fine day when i plugged it back into my laptop. I dont think its an electrical or mechanical phenomena .. seems like a sick virus to me .. but to have the disk in a completely formated feel is weird. I have put data recovery on and i still am waiting for a file to be found, With 40 % recovery process complete. I just hope there is a solution to this soon.

How do I format my WD MyBook Elite to FAT32


Using FAT32 these days on a current OS will half the
HDD storing capabilities especially if your unit uses'
a SATA HDD , FAT32 speed compared to NTFS is
less than half and the compression tool on NTFS
are more compact and compile better , also FAT32
is used to apply an operating system not for external
storage and if you are using your external storage HDD for holding an operating system to the HDD
will be suspectable to contracting viruses and
putting your data at risk , since the external HDD
is static and does not run through the OS registry
