Hello, have a issue with my external keep on asking to format. When i do that it does not complete the format due to corrupt file or system driver not found. Even if you go to disk management the hardrive does show & is also healthy but saying RAW where the other is saying NFTS something like that. Please assist.



System Configuration: Android / UC Browser 13.3.5.1304

Hi,

When the drive starts showing RAW status then it means that the drive's file system is not found and due to which it becomes inaccessible. Now to make it accessible again you need to first initialize the drive and then assign the new file system to the drive.
