Hello,
I had old external hard disk with enclosure and USB. It was working fine. I formetted it using NTFS (format command)... which seems to format but at the end it gave error and stopped. Now it does not work.

When I plug USB my PC assigns it a drive E, but if I click on E: it asks me to format, if I say ok it gives another error that it cannot format.

I downloaded swissknife to format, but when I open swissknife I do not see E:

I hope someone can help.

Thanks.

hi,
try it in another computer and see the result.
if the same thing persists, then try to update the driver.
go to device manager, right-click on the hard drive and then select on properties;
click on driver, select update driver.
