Use CHKDSK To Recover Your Hard Drive

by Jan 19, 2023Technology0 comments

Sometimes when I mount the direct attached drive storage, I encounter this error where Windows ask me to reformat the disk.

Previously, I panicked and used Software Recovery to recover my data.

Disk X: is 6 Terabytes, and Disk Z: is 16 Terabytes.

Imagine how long it takes to recover those data because I am sure the data is still there, it’s just that Windows doesn’t recognize it.

And I need to find another drive to copy all the recovered data, and then reformat the disk, and then copy back all the data!

End up, I actually can solve the problem with just;

chkdsk :x /f

Just type those in Command Prompt, run as Administrator, and we’re done!
