But I don't know how! I had the same problem and I used the free program where you can create a partition (even though I didn't know what I was doing going through the various screens), but it didn't immediately fix it and it was still not accessible for a few days. Then, about 2-3 days later I noticed my external drive was accessible again, but I don't know how it happened.
