    Thumbs down hp sd500a External SimpleSave Hard drive become "unallocated" and "Not Init

    hp sd500a External SimpleSave Hard drive become "unallocated" and "Not Initialized"


    Got this 500GB Disk for over 2 years and everything was FINE.Now it is NOT RECOGNIZED under "My Computer" .

    In the "Disk Management" it says "Unallocated","Not Initialized" AND Became "Disc 4" (Was Disk i Before).
    In addition i get a "Disc3" that I Can NOT REMOVE.
    (My OS is Windows7 Ultimate X64)

    Using The "RECOVERMYFILES" Software I managed to Rescue all My Important Files (I Hope) and saved them on my local HD.

    My Questions are:
    1, How do i get rid of "Disc3" ?
    2. Is it possible to REPAIR My Portable (Hopefully Without erasing all the data) ???

    I Got the all the Tools from the "Hiren's BootCD" but i preferred not to do anything before i ask You guys.

    Thanks in advance
