What to do if format message appears when attaching an external hard drive?
Keen to know about the "format" option that comes up when you connect your external hard drive to PC? Getting a format option every time you plug in a hard drive to your PC/ laptop? Keep following this thread to know the solution.
About 4-5 days ago, and also 2-3 times earlier, when I attached the external hard drive to my PC, it gave a message that it needs to be formatted. What does this message signify? Meaning, why exactly does it need to be formatted? Also, if I click on the 'format' button, won't all the data on it get completely erased?
Note that yesterday when I attached the external hard drive to save my work, this message did not come, which was quite strange! Please advise what should be done next time I do see the format message.
