External H D was NTFS now it is 'RAW' WHAT TO DO?
I have a Western Digital 2T External HD. It "pooped-out" some time ago but being always hopeful I keep it connected to my computer. It continually says the drive must be formatted . . . it took me a long time to reconcile myself to the fact that I would have to let all of my information (almost the full 2T!) go - it is lost to me! So when I finally clicked the ok go ahead FORMAT button the stupid thing will not or cannot be formatted. Tonight it appears to have changed to RAW. HOW can I reformat this "machine" I DO NOT need to retrieve ANY info from it! I just want to be able to use this external hard drive once more. DOES ANY ONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS
