I have a 350 gb external storage hdd.
It was recently formatted for NTFS.
I want to re-format it for ext4 or any format that is compatible with Linux.
I backed up all the data and reformatted but when I put the data back onto the HDD, the files are inaccessible. In otherwords, they will not open.
Does anyone have suggestion as to how I can reformat the HDD properly so that I can copy the data back to the HDD?
