Question about SimpleTech 250GB USB2.0 7200 RPM External 250 GB IDE Hard Drive
I bought a hard drive over the internet. It was used but according to the store it was still in good condition. For about a week in a half it worked fine but a friend of mine reformatted my laptop. When I tried to get back to the data in my external drive the computer only recognized it as an USB attachment. I have tried to access the drive on several other machines and still nothing. I would let this go but I transferred many sentimental and important files onto the drive. Is there any way to get a hold of the files. I was told I should have someone who works in computer forensics work on it but if there is something I can do to recover my files please let me know. I am desperate to get the files some of them are essential for my job.
All my not be lost. You've a lot of really great freeware options for file recovery if you're running Windows. Notable apps include Undelete Plus , PC Inspector File Recovery , and Restoration. Undelete Plus is the most user-friendly option of the bunch, with advanced filtering options that make it easy to find your needle of a file among the haystack of deleted garbage, but in my tests I found both Restoration and PC Inspector File Recovery to be more effective at recovering files. (Of course, your mileage may vary.) As an added bonus, the bare bones Restoration is portable, which makes it an excellent addition to a thumb drive or external SimpleTech 250GB Drive.
UPDATE: Per several readers advice, you may also want to check out Recuva another freeware Windows file recovery tool.
P.S. Don't forget to leave a rating!
