I have a Seagate FreeAgent Portable Drive.
It was fine yesterday night when I was using it but this morning when I plugged it in, my computer didn't autoplay it and when I clicked it on the computer, it didn't want to open.
Five restarts later on my computer and it still didn't want to. Now, my laptop is telling me to format it. I have so much on it and I don't want to lose them. My brother told me it might be corrupted but is there any way for me find out if it isn't and if I can still get the data inside and not need to format it?
And if it's a lost cause now, how can I prevent this from happening again?
