Hello Team,

I really need your help and expertise. I connected my Toshiba External Drive containing my game files and iso. to my Samsung TV to watch a movie. I connected it back to my PC and I had this error.

Meanwhile I tried using a recovery tool to see if my files are showing and this is it.

Meaning my files are still on it.


The Samsung TV model is as follows. https://prnt.sc/n25wpy


Whenever I plug in my external it prompts me to format. I don't want to lose all my files just like that. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks in advance.

The TV reformatted the hard drive using a Linux file system when you attempted to record onto the drive.

It's strange that the EaseUS recovery program was not able to recover the Partition. I've had good luck with their programs. In any case it's possible that the TV recorded megabytes of data right over your PC data files.
