Currently have an internal HDD running windows 10.
Before it was on Win 7 but the I took it off and made it as an external drive because all of a sudden all files (C drive files were deleted by themselves or gone).
So I was thinking maybe I can recover the files if I make it as an external drive.
Now, upon plugging the USB cable of the external drive that holds my Windows7 based OS files into the USB slot, my computer didn't detect it. On disk management it shows as drive E: no media. I have tried to change the letters to U and Z etc and still not recognised by the computer. Also on disk management it says memory of drive E is 0 and no media.
Tried to do it on other USB ports, didn't work.
Is windows 7 external drive ( was an internal drive) compatible with Windows 10 based computers?
