Windows 10: Hard drive healthy but cannot be accessed by Windows 10

    Hard drive healthy but cannot be accessed by Windows 10


    I have been having on start up my F drive being "repaired" but it cannot be accessed by Windows. Computer Management lists the disk as F: and as healthy! But the file system as RAW. There is also in addition the F: and C: an unidentified Volume with no file system which has a status of Healthy (Recovery partition)

    This issue arose after a lightning strike. The files are there but i can;t access them normally. The drive was used for backup so since I have the original files should I just reformat the drive or scrap it and buy a new one?

    If it's raw it's lost its partition table the quickest is to delete anything left then format I would then go to disk makers site and download their test and check the drive

    Thanks. It is an old drive and Sea Tools has failed it. Time to upgrade my storage. Two 2GB drives set up as a mirror should do nicely.
