lost external hard drive partitions
lost external hard drive partitions –
Not quite sure this is the right forum to post my problem, but I would appreciate any help.
Yesterday my son was playing his favorite ps3 game from the external 2TB drive using multiman without problems. However when he turned the ps3 on this morning, it's xmb was very laggy and slow. So, I went to recovery mode and rebuilt the database and restored the file system. This didn't solve the problem. But I noticed that the ps3 was working fine if I disconnect the external drive. So, I connected the external hard drive to my laptop to see what's wrong with it. I was shocked when i saw the Windows 7 message that the hard drive has no partitions and that it needs formatting. Of course I didn't format it or do anything with it, waiting for an advise on how to solve the problem and restore my game backups. Again any help is much appreciated.
PS. I am on Rogero 4.3 v. 1.04
