My computer crashed with a USB drive attached but now I cannot access the USB drive

by on January 26, 2009

Q: My computer just crashed and I had a USB hard drive attached at the time it crashed. When I restarted the computer and attempted to access my USB hard drive it no longer showed up as a drive. I unplugged it and replugged it in. What happened was it asked me if I wanted to view files etc on the USB hard drive but then when I clicked on view files it told me there was no USB hard drive. Does anyone know what happened, how to fix my USB hard drive, and whether or not the info is still on it?

    What model information can you provide about the external harddrive?

    Just to make 100% sure, we aren’t talking about a usb flash drive right?
