    Portable 2.5" Hard Drive

    My brother has a Portable hard drive which now comes up as unreadable and corrupted, it has vital files for his uni work which are really important, any way fixing it? And maybe if needed to format a way of retrieving the data?

    Disc check runs automatically?

    when you boot the PC it should give you the "this disc must be checked..."

    otherwise open my computer, right click the USB dive them properties, click tools tab, click check now, tick both boxes and click ok, you will then need to reboot.
