Hi, a virus has converted the drive to raw format, it doesnt boot as windows is corrupt and needs reinstalled, but only option it allows is to format the drive,

i have used recovery software to retrieve some information, but is there a way i can convert the drive from raw back to ntfs or fat 32?
as i know the drive is fine as its been tested with no problems.
the information is really important any suggestions
Hello, have you tried to open your PC antivirus software to remove the possible viruses off from this external hard disk at first? In fact, in case of worse virus-infection issues, it is always necessary to get rid of the hard disk viruses or threats completely. And then, connect this computer to your PC and see whether your drive files are still recoverable.
As with RAW format external drive, you can directly apply some RAW file system drive recovery software to take chances.
Here is the guidance for you to go on:
External hard disk RAW file system recovery
Prepare the hard disk data backups on other hard disks well.
