    Default Trying to access external hard drive.....please


    Lenovo B51-80
    Intel Core i5 6200U
    4 GB ram
    126GB SSD

    I have a Seagate BUP Slimline 1TB external drive, all was working well, but I think I have pulled it out while it was "reading"

    External drive shows in device manager and properties says its working properly

    Nothing showing in Explorer or My Computer
    Nothing showing in Disk Management

    I have tried right clicking it within device manager to try and force it to disable/enable or update driver or uninstall and it just hangs indefinitely.

    I have downloaded a couple of data recovery programs but they don't see the drive.

    I have plugged the external into my sons desktop and it's not seen there either.

    Does anyone know of a fix for this? or have I rendered it useless?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Can you format it and see? Update your drivers. Else see if it works on another computer.
