Partition disappeared from Ext HDD
Googling hasn't really helped me on this one. I have a 250gb Seagate GoFlex HDD, of which 50gb is used for backups of my Wii games (the optical drive is dodgy). It's formatted in WBFS format.
I've never had a problem with it. Randomly today I noticed it wasn't appearing in "my computer" and also the Wii isn't detecting it at all.
I figured it's not a big issue as I can just resize to create the partition again, reformat it, and add my backups to it again.
However when I try to use my partition software, it's only seeing the hdd as having 1 partition, of 200gb... so this other 50gb seems to have disappeared completely. I can't work out where it's gone. Any ideas?
If nothing obvious springs to mind I'll just back up literally everything on it and format it completely from scratch. Just a pretty random issue really.
Look in Disk management, does the 50 GB show up there?
If it does, you should be able to remove it and remake the partition in Disk management.

Did you run a Seatools diagnostic on the drive? It's possible that the drive is failing.
