Question about Seagate Free Agent Go Small 12 GB USB External HD ST600121GSA1E1-RK USB 2.0 Hard Drive
After one year of use, usb hard drive suddenly no longer shows files; windows prompts to format disk
Are there options that do not involve re-formatting? I would like to keep the data that was previously stored on the disk.
Yes there are. The first thing I'd say to you is you may want to involve a professional if the disc contains critical information because they would have experiance and tools you don't. If it's not that critical and you want to give it a shot you can run a file system check on the volume or run a program like spinrite www.spinrite.com

format /FS:FAT32 X:
Replace the letter X with the letter of your external hard drive in Windows. Windows will go ahead and begin formatting the drive in FAT32!
Format external hard drive in FAT32 using SwissKnifeSwissKnife is a nifty little program that is completely free and that you can use to format many types of external drives such as USB, Firewire, PCMIA, SATA and SCSI. You can also use it to create partitions on an external hard drive and it formats faster than Windows.
