I have a WD Elements 1 TB drive that doesn't seem to be working the second time around. My OS is Windows 10. I tried moving some images and it seemed to work fine. A couple of months later it doesn't work- I've tried updating drivers going to Device Manager but it says the best driver is already installed. Under Disk Management the drive shows as RAW. Not sure what I should be doing now, so any help would be appreciated. I don't mind losing the existing data on the Drive. Should i be formatting it? Why doesn't it show as NTFS? Please advise.
Thanks in advance.
I continue to run Linux Mint on my Linux only desktop. The grandkids find it easy to use and it is a good opton for anyone coming from Windows. I had it on an older laptop as well, but personally I prefer the look, feel and performance of MX Linux on that machine so I changed over.
