SOURCE: my external hard drive is corrupt, i want my data back.

Data can be recover but the drive must be accessible by OS. As you write windows vista says drive is not accessible and that the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.Do one thing try the same drive at another PC. If it run on that PC copy the data to that PC. Now format the drive and paste the same data back to your drive. But, if same thing happend then there are chances of fault in the driveand for this you shuld visit to the service cetre but, they are not responsible for the data.

Thanks & regards,

Hello.. My Buffalo hard-drive just suddenly this morning turned into a FAT32-type format, and i'd like to get it back to default, how do i do this?

Whatever you find out, before you do it, back up your data before you do it, if it still exists. If it's gone, you should be able to just format it and choose the file system you like. Right click the drive and hit format

Drive H

Hi there, Not sure what the problem is but I assume you are trying to format and use this USB Drive.
To Format:
  1. Open the Start Menu and click my Computer
  2. Right-click the H: drive (which I assume is your USB Drive)
  3. Choose Format and then leave default settings and click format.
To Use:
  1. When formatting is done you can use this drive as if it was another folder
  2. Drag and Drop files from your desktop to the H: Drive or Right-click files and Send To --> H:
Hope this helps.

Once it's gone, it's gone.
You can try loading the firmware update from Philips website, but this is unlikely to resolve.

i know nothing about Mac's ,but how lucky was you to still have access to your school files .
