How To Fix: External Disk Drive Suddenly Became RAW
A common and befuddling problem with computers is the sudden and seemingly inexplicable disappearance of an external hard drive that has been functioning properly. It can be a breathtaking experience to suddenly be told that your data, often irreplaceable pictures and documents, might be gone forever.
This can even happen on a pair of Raid 1 hard drive because maybe you purchased them as a pair at the same store and they both went down at the same time. I think it is almost better to buy them at different store location or to make sure they were not manufactured at the same time :)
As with many similar situations in life the appropriate response is “Don’t panic”. When approached sensibly and carefully, the situation can be resolved and the data saved more times than not.
