Usually when I plug my external hard drive (usb) it is recognized and open
as a folder. This one which was not mine didn't appear (or open like a
folder). I checked where my drive is shown but his wasn't there.
The hard drive seemed to be working but the computer didn't see anything.
(nothing in any logs neither- I checked them after) The man had a usb key,
so we used it (He needed a file from my computer). I didn't know the person
enough to have him wait and take a detailed look at the problem. After about
2 minutes waiting for the drive to appear we switch to usb key and copied
I do not know why his hard drive wasn't recognized or if it was doing
anything but it stayed plugged about 2 minutes. Is there anyway I can find
out what happened a few hours ago or do I just forget it and note the
command for next time? (I do not have the drive anymore)
