Question about Computers & Internet
Because of some reasons I had to format my external hard drive. Now I want to restore data from it. Can anyone help me to recover data from formatted hard drive? Any help will be highly appreciated.
There are recover utilities, some freeware. Since this is external, you may be to give it an 'unformat/ ' command, with the drive letter after the slash. The command would be entered in the 'RUN' box.

Yes you can just take the hard drive out of the case, can use it with any other case, you can also just put it inside your computer and connect it to the sata cable :)
Heres a case you could use for your drive... Click Here

Yes. This is going to sound strange. Put the drive in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. Next day, take it out, hook it up, and see if it is recognized.
If so, under My computer, right click on the drive - click Properties - then Tools, then Error Checking. Check box Automatically Fix File System Errors. Let it run. If everything shows up, be ready to transfer wnat you want off of it.
Freezing shrinks the metal parts . Microscopically, but often enough to get stuck parts free enough to get working.
I just went through this with a 750Gig Book. now i have reformatted the drive (after transferring all over to new drive) and the clicking is gone and all disk checks are fine and i wonder whether to trust this device ever again... Hate to just throw out a large drive.

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,

SOURCE: when i try to use
Don't be panic. you can try this power data recovery software. download the file recovery software from
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.
If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.
