I'm having trouble fixing a hard drive that i may have permanently damaged. When trying to format from ntsf to fat 32 being the genius that i am i accidentally deleted the volume from the hard drive. Ive asked several people what to do because ive tried everything i can think of but the computer will not recognize the hard drive anymore under my computer. However it will recognize it in device manager. It pops up under 2 different categories, mass storage device and under usb. i was told to do a format from run and this did not work. all it did was pop up a screen for a split second then closed. Someone told me to go under disk management and right click unollocated space but this does nothing. it will not let me format it either. When i plug it into the computer it turns on but like i said it just doesnt work . Im starting to think it cannot be fixed without some type of software. If anyone has any opinions or ideas on how to fix this please message me on here. I know someone out there could atleast tell me if its worth keeping or throwing in the trash. The dang thing worked fine until i screwed it up. Please help im a desperate man.
