Hi ,

i had this problem since last week ,and I thought that I lost all my datas which was on my Ext HDD . So .. the solution is to easy just right click on your dead drive and go to the properties you must click on Scan and fix errors then restart your computer ( dont unplug your Ext HDD or Dead drive let it be connected ) it will fix everthing automaticly. it is not something to worry.

My 1TB (raid1 mode) MyBook started complaining the same after the computer crashed. I ran "chkdsk" without any parameters in command prompt and got it working. It corrected the indexes..

Alternatively, you can also try free or paid recovery tools to get back your files from corrupted external hard drive. Use tools like Recuva or Stellar Phoenix that works pretty well across different situations of data loss.

Good luck!!
