Question about Smartdisk - Peripherals - HARD DRIVE, CROSSFIRE 160GB EXTERNAL (XG160F)
Power failure has cused my 400g external USB Drive to lose partiton information as well as the MBR and MFT. I have software to recover my files from it, but would like to reformat the drive once recovered, I cannot find it in disk management but do find it in my computer but won't let me access it without the recover software. All I want is to reformat the drive and get it to work again, weithout spending $200 to have it recovered.
Hi, You may want to try: 1. HP Utility Software (actually intended for flashdrives but I have tried it and it worked with my external USB drive)http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/serveroptions/us/download/23839.html 2. Partition Magic http://www.soft32.com/download_151.html (have used this likewise with no problems just don't forget to set in preferences your main drive as read only) Hope this be of some help and give you ideas. Pls post again how things turn. Good luck and kind regards.
