Okay, so I have an External Hard-Drive with VERY IMPORTANT WORK on it. And I need that work immediently. But. I'm scared it has a virus. The computer it was last used on didn't leave the USB port of the computer. Always plugged in. But that computer got infected with a RAT.

Since then I have not have the courage to,

1. Use that infected computer to rid the virus.

2. See if the External Hard-Drive has the virus.

I know it seems stupid and the only way to see if it has a virus is to plug it in, but is there a more secure way?

It's a Seagate 1TB hard-drive.

Thanks!
