  1. Had learned from your post! Thanks for the information!

  2. My external HDD can’t be recognized!Help!

    • Turn the computer off without the external hard drive being plugged in.
      plug the external hard drive in a usb port, power up, the systems post boot up will find the drive and inform windows what hardware is installed.
      When windows boots up, it will look at all the hardware and find the external hard drive, when windows finishes booting up you should be able to see it in my computer.
      If you can’t access your files,Tenorshare can help. 🙂
