Hello,

I have followed your instructions stated in the link below.

https://ccm.net/faq/26351-western-digital-hard-disk-not-being-detected

In the last step, I see greyed entries as you said. If I delete them, will I lose the data in the external disk? If yes, are there any solutions to recover the data?

Thanks
Tandoğan

You're asking about:
"...f you find any greyed entries > Right click on it > Select "Uninstall".
Restart your PC and connect your external drive and the drivers will be re-installed..."
From my experience, uninstalling drivers and letting Windows re-discover hard-ware, letting Windows re-find and re-install the needed drivers did not in any way alter, add to, subtract from, the data content of either internal or external media.
