Question about Seagate (9Y7275557) 400 GB Hard Drive
I backed up all my data to my external hard drive and now that I am attempting to retrieve it, I am prompted to format the drive. Recently, one of my family members connected the external hard drive to a MAC. Would this be the cause of this error? Can it be fixed?
This is a common problem. IF the external was unplugged during a operations, there is a possibility of hard drive corruption. Also, you mentioned it was on a MAC. If your buddy formatted the drive for the MAC (Which would be HSF) so PC won't see the filesystem anymore until you reformat for PC (FAT or NTFS). I understand you might not was to reformat, but that is my recommended answer to this issue. There is one other choice though. Try googling Diskwarrior. This program is pretty good at repairing corrupted harddrives and it pretty good at detecting filesystems. If disk warrior doesn't do the trick, I would go with reformating.
