Main Threads:Changing cluster interrupted now external hdd cant be read
  • Hi converting ntfs to fat32 was interrupted during changing cluster and now my external harddrive couldn't be detected. is there anyway to fix this?

  • Update: Tried plugging it to USB 2.0 port and it is detected, on USB 3.0, its not.It is aking me to format the disk which I prefer not to yet unless there is no other choice. I prefer to keep the data if it is recoverable.

  • Can Windows access the data when you plugged the drive to USB2.0?

  • It only prompts to format the disk so I dont think it can access the data or I cant say for sure.

  • I'm afraid the drive was corrupted.

  • So what does that mean? I cant restore the data even if i use recuva? If so, can I still format the drive and make it useful again? I badly need your response. Thanks

  • Update. 

    It is detected on port 3.0 but, again, prompts me to format it.

  • You could try recuva to see if it can recover the data. If not, you'll have to format the drive.
