Your system can suffer data loss anytime due to hard drive failure or system crash that makes your valuable files inaccessible. Here are the three error messages that your computer shows as a warning sign that help you notice any hard drive problem and prevent data loss at times. Author Divya Jain View all posts

1. Error message drive is not formatted: When your files are inaccessible to you and the screen is showing this error message, it means the hard drive partition is damaged, deleted or corrupted. This could happen due to  human, electrical or hardware error. Avoid the “format now” option if it shows up in the screen to prevent permanent data deletion.

2. Error message missing operating system: When these messages show up on your screen, this simply means the hard drive has failed, the boot record is damaged, or wrong settings with the basic input/output system (BIOS). This renders files inaccessible.

3. Error message drive or device not found: The error message simply means the hard drive is damaged. There could also be chances that there are some wrong settings in the BIOS.
