Well you will have to back-up the files first by using a file recovery tool while the HDD is in another machine. once it is retrieved, format the HDD then reinstall your OS, then load the files you had in it previously, or re-load a snap-shot of the HDD before formatting. im speaking generally okay, this may depend on how the HDD was locked.

    Try to run a scan disk utility on the drive and that should take care of the issue.

It should be. does the computer locks up even when the hard drive is not plugged in

    If your computer is getting locked up as soon as you plug in the hard drive. Than the first step would be to check the same Hard Drive on another computer and backup the data if you get the access to it.

    If your computer is freezing up otherwise as well. Than it could be spywares on the computer.
    In that case download the free superantispyware software from here and do a complete scan on your computer.

    Also see if your harddrive does not show up in the My Computer, than it could be an issue with the harddrive. In this case try changing the cable and use different ports on the computer. (Try to check the hard drive on other computer).
    Else you will have to take to vendor.

My external drive is broken, how do i open i up to fix it / recover my data?


Look for hidden screws under any labels or rubber feet. Otherwise it is likely friction fit together with tap and slot locks. Then you will need to pry it apart. Your best option is to open, remove the harddrive you find inside and install into a new external hard drive chassis.

HOW TO EJECT FANTOM MODEL GF2000EU EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE FROM SYSTEM WITHOUT CAUSEING ANY HARM TO DATA?


To be safe, turn off the computer the external is connected to before unplugging the drive. This will ensure that no data will be lost. Most of the time, you can disconnect a USB connected drive from a computer without loosing data, as long as any data you are trying to transfer or save on the external is completed. However, this is the sure safe way to do it.

I have an external freecom 400gb hard drive


The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.
