HDD
Hello, For some reason, my computer can't seem to find my external HDD. I can't access the files on it at all. It was working fine until a couple of days ago and I haven't done an update on my computer. What should I do here? It's saying that it's not accessible: The parameter is incorrect.

    What OS is there? Linux/Windows/Mac or other. Have you checked with a good antivirus. Or is your external HDD is OK now, If possible connect this HDD with another system and see if that works. Or reboot your system in safe mode (windows) and check if this detects the HDD.

    What "computer"? (Vendor? Model?) And what OS is running? What type/model is the HDD? And how is it connected? (I'd assume USB.)

    Has the "computer" been restarted since the last time the HDD was working? Are the any power problems at your location?

    For us to help, we need to know what you're working with.
