    Default how can I verify data loss on an external hard drive?

    I accidentally removed my external usb drive without ejecting.
    The next time I connected the drive Windows 10 prompted a scan to fix errors.

    They were fixed after the scan and the hard drive connects fine but this drive is loaded with pictures and music.



    What exactly did Windows fix and is there a way to find out if a file was lost?

    Pretty sure that nothing was lost unless you unplugged it while a file operation like copying moving etc. When you unplug a device all of a sudden or during an operation, windows does perform this kind of check for hardware inietgrity.
