Hi there I'm having issues accessing some external hard drives which are suddenly inaccessible (i.e. I have one that is fine but three that are not). They are seen as "e-drive" via my computer, in disk management it shows as no media, in chkdsk (via cmd run as administrator) it is not accessible. Searches reveal that the disk could have become inadvertently encrypted (rather than corrupted). Help gratefully sought! I am running Windows 7, 64 bit laptop. Thanks in advance, Kate

Encrypted with what?
