After connecting the external hard disk to your computer you got an error message when you tried to access it. “The Disk is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?” Now what should be done? You have ultimately lost access to the precious data stored in the external hard drive.

Some critical data from the external hard drive may get erased by Antivirus scanning program in case it is unable to fix the corruption
- Accidental system shutdown: Files from the external hard drive can be lost due to accidental system shut down after a power failure. Such scenarios can corrupt the file system of the externally connected hard drive leading to inaccessibility of data stored in it. Sometimes, it gives rise to format error in the external HDD
