Cannot Access File. Drive is not Accessible

One of my records from my internal hard drive is not accessible. I just replaced the name to a local disk and everytime I clicked on it to open an error message pops up and says: "The disk in drive is not formatted. Would you like to set it up?” I do not want to format it because I would lose all data inside.  Is there a workaround for this? Thanks.

That error may be occurring because the disk you are trying to access either has not been prepared to be used by the operating system that you are using. Or it could be also possible that the disk has been damaged and the data on it can no longer be read.

So you will need to rescue data that is on the disc before you proceed to formatting it.  Right click on it and then choose explore so as to view its contents. But if you do not have data saved on the disk yet then the better, you will just need to go ahead and format it so that it can be ready to be used on your computer.
