Recover files on hard drive

I let my best friend borrow my hard drive to copy some movies. When he returned it I was not able to view or see any of the files. It prompts me to format the hard drive. How can I fix this. It shows it as a local drive instead of removeable drive.

Replace hard disk


Any 2.5" SATA hard drive will work (2.5"=notebook size).
SATA III (three) is what you want.

I would use Carbon Copy Cloner, or SuperDuper to copy your drive. Borrow a friend's USB or Thunderbold external hard drive bay to attach the drive until you copy your original drive. Then just swap the drives, and your MacBook will boot on the new drive.

All the best to you,

Can I copy d partition from a bad hard drive that tested for 10 min before bad hard drive showed up in test


you could run the chkdsk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recovery any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive there are many ways of running the chkdsk utility


click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors


then select check now, start should schedule this task when restart

it will only schedule on restart if its the Primary hard drive with an operating system on it

do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer


for USB drives click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start


you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive


I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

then try copting your d partition

All your files are still stored on the hard drive.They're just invisible or inaccessible.You can recover them with data recovery software.

Sony dcr-sx40. Restore deleted movies from the camera hard drive


The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!
