i have a 128G SSD (solid state drive). After upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 10, somehow ntfs partition became RAW, what should I do to change it back to NTFS? I don t want to lose anything... pls help!
RAW file system indicates that the file system on the drive has become corrupt or damaged. While the data may still remain on the physical drive, it will not be accessible through normal operating system access methods. This issue can be caused by the following reasons:
Viruses or spyware on the computer
Unsafely eject external SSD disk
The file system of SSD disk is corrupted
The SSD drive is physically failed or there are media errors on the SSD disk
When running chkdsk to check the errors on SSD disk, chkdsk complains that it is unable to perform a RAW file system recovery. The type of the file system is RAW. CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.
RAW file system is not really a type of file system but presents a problem of the SSD disk. The often used file system is NTFS, FAT16/FAT32 or EXT2/EXT3, so what is RAW file system? Just a system error that makes SSD disk become RAW so that you cannot access files there without recovery software.
