I have used my 1 terrabite harddrive with macbook. I did not format it for mac. Now I cannot open the harddrive on mac or windows and I have very important info stored. How can I retrieve the info?


It sounds like the partition on your Verbatim drive is damaged but the first thing to do is determine the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if you need data recovery help this a good choice for low cost and fast data recovery. All data recovery work is performed remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask for donations if you are happy with the results: http://FreeDataRecovery.us

use the source (pc/Mac) that created the data to remove it.

I dropped 500gb verbatim external drive. It wants me to format the drive. How can i get the data back before i format it? Please help Thank you


Because the first few records stored on the disk-drive have been corrupted (or are physically unreadable), you get the "please format" message. Hopefully, the other 99.9 percent of the data-blocks stored on the disk-drive are OK.

Search online for 'data recovery' software -- it reads through the disk-drive, block-by-block, trying to merge blocks of data back into files that can be copied onto your 'C:' drive.

I am trying to write files to a terabyte verbatim portable hard drive, but it saids the drive can not be modified. How do I write to the verbatim hard drive on my mac?


Hello,

Most verbatim drives are formatted to by default to NTFS which is a windows file system. NTFS can be read and copied from on Mac but not written to.

You will need to offload the data to one of your computers and reformat it with the mac.

Apple, Utilities, Disk Utility.

Once formatted for Mac you will be able to read and write to the drive but you will need to add macdisk to the windows PC to allow it to read and write to a Mac formatted disk.

I more information on my FAQ about recovering data from Mac drives on PC

How to reformat verbatim insight hard drive


Reformatting your drive will wipe it clean ,so save any programs ect you want.On your PC go to Start,right click on My Computer and select Manage. Under Storage click on Disk Management and find your hard drive in the list and right click on it and select Format. If you want to put files of more than 4GB I suggest you choose NTFS. To do so ,under File System change the Answer to NTFS and leave the Allocation Unit to default.Click on Perform Quick Format if you want,and confirm that your OK with losing all data on the drive and your done.

This external drive isn't recognized by any of my computers. HELP


If it is not showing up on any computers there's most likely a hardware problem in the drive or AC adapter. Do the lights come on when you plug the power in? If not you need a new adapter, if they do the failure is either in the drive caddy circuitry or in the drive circuitry. You can take it to your local PC shop and have the techs test the HDD in a new caddy, if it works in the new caddy your done, if it doesn't you may need the help of a pro to recover your files off of the drive. Hope this helps FixYa, if you need additional assistance or a referal to a pro comment back here with questions or your country and city. Chris

External hard drive does not display icon in My Computer


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.
