Hi Leonard. I've tried unmounting it, but I can't even mount it at
all. The computer seems to understand that it's a USB device, but it
doesn't actually figure out that it's a hard drive.
Also, I haven't unplugged it in months. It is an external hard drive,
but it isn't portable and needs power from a wall outlet to work.
Also, I got it so I can use it on a desktop.
Originally, when I realised that there was a problem, the first thing
that I did was unplug it. Doesn't seem to have worked. Thanks for the
