Hard Drive Not Read - Windows 10 - Partitioned RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an older hard drive with a lot of important data on it. Always used on PC - Windows only despite it being a Seagate for Mac. It wouldn't show up at first so I installed Paragon; the letter drive is now there but it wants me to format it. Since I cannot access this drive to back it up... How do I get my stuff back and where in these forums do I go?!

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Would you explain your situation with more details?
    Did you use the older hard drive in Windows PC?  How do you connect it to the current PC?  as an internal drive, or an external drive via USB, etc. What can you see the drive in BIOS, Device Manager, and Disk Management?
     
    Anyway, to enable us to help you better, you need to provide as many details as you can.  

    Regards,
