Here's the case:
I have an external hard drive which contains several files. I was facing no issues so far, but now when I try to connect it to my laptop, I hear the windows sound that something is connected but when I open my computer I don't see it.
I followed the steps required so as to find it through the "Computer Management" -> "Storage" -> "Disk Management", and assign to it the letter that would then allow it to be shown to "My Computer". But the issue is that the computer doesn't "see" the hard drive at all. I couldn't find it in the "Disk Management". I tried connecting the hard drive to other computers but the results are exactly the same. :/
I have freaked out so please please please let me know what I should do on the matter!
