And NEVER leave our last good copy in a single/encrypted device.
The lesson here is that externals are not reliable and backups are cheap.
In the future forget adding more reasons for the volume to fail (bitlocker.)
Hey, am having a problem with my external hard drive which is: TRANSCEND 1TB STOREJET on windows 10. IWhen decrypting my hdd it stopped around 60-70%, I don't quite remember because this happened about a week ago. After it stopped, it said I should do /chkdsk /r, I did that nothing happened and my windows explorer was not responding. So I disconnected it from my PC. The windows explorer worked, after I put it back it said I should put my password but when I put it nothing happened it just stayed there, I waited for 1 hour nothing worked, I tried finding a solution online but unfortunately, none of them worked.
Pls help me, I have very very important files there.
Here is a video that shows what I mean: https://youtu.be/GtyNpf5BtOk
