Hello,

MY WD external hard drive is not being recognized on my PC. I can find it under disk management but is stating it as unallocated and Not Initialized. I heard there is some software I can download that might help me.

Thanks,

Ed

If Windows can't open the drive then no software is going to help.

It's possible that you could read the files using a Linux computer.

Good Luck
