You can get the data back. But I hope you did not install anything and _only_ formatted the drive.

First of all, put this hard disk in a PC that has windows xp already working fine. If you are able to see this hard disk, that is if it shows in the Right-clcik My Computer -> Computer Management -> Disk Management, then you will be able to recover.

Download this utility:

It's a single file once you uncompress it. You might need winrar from http://www.rarlabs.com to unrar it if you do not already have it.

Once you unrar it, extract it to your desktop and just double click it. It has many utilities but just click the Data Recovery button and everything is self explanatory from there. Read the quick user guide and user manual if needed.

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.

I feel for you. Since you said it was a backup I would highly recommend getting another hard drive and backing up your data from the original machine before you lose it all, then work on recovering the existing one.

When the power went out it probably wrote garbage to the MBR and possibly other areas. If the data is as important as you say, I would contact a professional, one mistook could make the data unrecoverable.

I would suggest Electronic Restoration Services (http://ers-us.com) at 1-888-355-001) or any other realiable service.

You can always try rewriting the MBR with one of the many utilities available but be sure you know what you are doing. Only you know the value of the data on the drive.

Good Luck,

Suddenly drive is asking to format how can I save my data


Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://download.cnet.com/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-75328850.html?part=dl-75328850&subj=dl&tag=button
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the external hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the external hard drive and recover your files.

Format the drive, right click in my computer and select format. Then select NTFS as the filesystem/format.

External harddrive (MyBook) not recognize


Okay, here is what you can do to just verify that you haven't lost all the data on the hard drive (HDD failure, due to the manufacturer or a drop or heavy shake). Download a copy of Slax Linux www.slax.org 32 bit version will work, and burn the ISO they give you to a CD. I would recommend using Alcohol 120 www.alchoholsoft.com. Boot in Slax, and see if you can get the computer to recognize the HDD. If so, backup your important data onto other hard drives or thumb drives. Then when you have enough data backed up, you can format the hard drive.

Now, to get really fancy, lets say you have a somewhat corrupt formatted hard drive, and enough data free to encompass the data you have on the hard drive. Well, what you can do is download a program called "partition magic" and do a partial non-destructive re-partition. Respond if you need to get to that point so I can get you a link to the program.

How can recover data from free agent desktop hdd


Well you should have gone in and marked the sectors that you think are bad, by formatting it odds are you wiped the data off it, you can try a low level recover but I dont think your going to find much. Sorry format means format.
