Question about Seagate Computers & Internet
In this morning, when trying to access Seagate external hard drive, Windows just asked me to format and the drive file system also was changed into RAW. I know I need format this drive to restore its file system from RAW to NTFS. But, I also cannot lose anything inside. Do you have any idea to help me? Thank you for any suggestion!
Still don't know what you can do to rescue your lost drive files right now?

There are two options for you to get your drive stuffs back right now:
1). Do not format this RAW file system external hard drive temporarily and plunge it to your PC. And then, choose and apply RAW external hard drive data recovery software to scan this drive and find your preferred drive files back as many as possible.
2). Directly consult some professional data recovery services from some data recovery companies or agencies.
In the future, remember to save copies of everything important on at least two devices in case of any similar data loss issues.

Hello, friend! It is often easily to convert your thumb drive from RAW to NTFS or FAT32. Merely format this hard disk as you often do and choose the NTFS or FAT32 file system as the destination drive format before the real formatting process.
But, before any format, also verify whether this RAW drive has held much important data or not. If there is really very, very important files and other stuffs left, you'd better recover the drive data back with RAW drive data recovery software.
Here is RAW drive data recovery guide for you:

There are companies that can save your stuff. Starting at $300.00 plus postage, there are some reputable companies that can transfer your files to a like hard drive. (500GB to a 500GB) Speaking from experience, there's no way that YOU'RE personally gonna be able to save anything on the drive. I followed someone's instructions on this very same problem and wound up losing ALL my data. That being said, in the future, make copies of your important files and either save them to the cloud or on a 64GB flash drive. Aside from above companies, you're outta luck. Sorry.
PS, don't listen to other people telling you about the Windows Disk Management program...you'll do more damage and make the drive unrecoverable.
