I was trying to create a partition on an external hard drive using Win10 Disk Management. It didn't ultimately do what I wanted (long story), so I right clicked on teh external hard drive, with the Windows Management tool, pressed Delete and now I can't see the external drive in Windows Management or File Explorer.

I have restarted several times and re-connected external hard drive. Win10 recognises the drive becasue I can hear the connection and there is an option in the tray to Eject it but I can't access it in File explorer ?!?

Any thoughts on I can get my external hard drive back?

Much appreciated ;)

Please post a screencap of your Disk Management window.

For "get my external hard drive back "....are you wanting the drive, or the drive + data?
I'm just after the drive .. happy to have lost the data ;)

urgh .. I cant figure out how to post a screencap .. I'm such a newb ... basically - the external hard drive was showing in the Device Management window and then I right clicked and selected delete and now has dissappeared ;(
