Hi xyloreinelace,

I presume the drive is not accessible. If the file system changed suddenly, this could indicate a hard drive issue. RAW means that your OS can not recognize the drive's file system. There are some ways to try to format to NTFS, but the important thing is why the issue appeared. I strongly recommend you to download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic tool and do a complete scan. Do you have valuable data in that drive?

Hope this helps

Raw drive is not formatted has not been formatted with the file system neither FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 nor NTFS/NTFS5.

so far as I know there is no tool can change your raw back to ntfs but you can restore files from the raw disk.

Hello xyloreinelace,
Open a command prompt:
Click on Start > Run > Type "cmd" and press Enter.

Enter the following command to scan your partition:
chkdsk X
Replace X by the letter assigned to the faulty partition.

If indeed there were conversion from NTFS to RAW, Windows will indicate the presence of bad clusters.
To correct these errors, enter the following command:
chkdsk X: /F
Replace X by the letter assigned to the faulty partition.
