I have a WD Elements 4T external drive that worked fine I went on vacation had it unplugged and now it won't show up in explorer. I can see it in Device manager and it says it is working properly, I tried to update drivers even uninstall the device, when running diskdrive get status it shows as ok. When trying to initialize it in disk manager I get a fatal hardware error.
