Question about Computers & Internet
I have some data backed up on the harddrive (mixture .avi and.exe) have been using it to backup files from both my MAC and windows XP computer. It doesn't read in the MAC and when i try to read in in Windows it says "f: is not formatted, would you like to format now" Have tried running PC recovery software which says the drive is badly damaged. How can i save the files on the hard drive?
Well, in your case your external may corrupt. The solution is format the drive and then try some so-called data recovery software. After finishing the format option. Do it as follows.
Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!
