Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
I have an external drive which I used to store my files then suddenly I can't see my files in the drive and it's asking me to format the drive, don't want to format because of my files.
Maybe partition on a drive has failed. You should not partition your
drive, as you will lose all your data this way. There are lot of
programs that might help you restore data from the disk. I recommend
that you download TuneUp Utilities here and install it on your computer. After the installation process completes, run the program.
When the program launches, click Solve problems, and then TuneUp Undelete. Follow the instructions to restore your files.
You will need enough storage on other hard disks on your computer to support the data from external disk.
After you salvage all the files to your local disk, you can safely format external drive, and then put these files back on it.
If you need any further assistance, please ask.

Plug the external hard drive into your laptop or desktop computer.
Most external hard drives do this through a cable connecting the hard drive to the USB outlet on a computer.
Plug your external hard drive into a wall outlet if it receives power from an AC adapter rather than your computer.
Click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, and open the external hard drive.
It will be located under the USB connecting drive, which is labeled with a letter ranging from "E:" to "K:".
Open the folder on your external hard drive where you would like to save the photographs.
usually in my documents my pictures or if you want to save them to a specific spot so as not get them mixed up.
Create a folder if one is not present right click in my documents select new folder and name it lets say my pics 1
Move this window to the bottom right corner of your screen to be used in future steps.
Open the folder on your home computer where the files are being stored that you wish to transfer to the external hard drive.
These may be on the desktop, in "My Documents" or elsewhere in your computer.
If you are unsure where they are located, you can always search for them by file name by going to "Start" then "Search."
Right-click on the photo file, and select "Cut."
Click on the window showing your hard drive files to bring it into use on the screen.
Right-click on the white space in the window where you would like to transfer the files, and select "Paste."
Your files have now been deleted from their original location and transferred to your external hard drive in the folder you selected
hope this helps
