"Hi, dear support. A few days ago, I found my portable HDD suddenly showed as unallocated space and it didn't appear at "My Computer", but shown in "Disk management" as unallocated space. Those files in the HDD was very important to me and I didn't have any backup of those. I was trying to recover those files and I didn't format the HDD. Is there any solutions?" - from Amanda
