Windows may ask if you want to format the drive, such as a warning reads "The disk in drive (X) is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?".
File names contain "weird" characters.
"Sector not found" messages.
Also a CHKDSK tool will complain 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.
