Question about Iomega (33090) 250 GB Hard Drive
My external hard drive had 15gigs of music on it, and now it when i plug it in it's asking me to reformat the hard drive and everything is at 0. what happened?
Evidently the logic structure is damaged so:
1. if you are really lucky, you will recover everything just by installing EASY RECOVERY PRO... (there are free trials on the net) try easy recovery in google.com. The follow the instructions, install the soft. It should place an icon on your desktop, run the program and you will have a wizard, choose what to do, what disk to take (of course with the damaged drive connected) and when it comes to choose... choose "gross recovery" option. You will have to wait for awhile, then you will be in front of a list of directories and files inside... just see carefuly, it will be ordered by file extention (BMP, JPG, AVI, MP3, etc); choose those you need and unselect those you dont.
NOTE: the recovered data must be placed in another disk in a safe folder.
2. the disk is damaged for sure, so once you have recovered all you better replace you HD for a new one.
Start here: http://www.ontrackdatarecovery.com/, this will do for a trial version, but if you know a little bit more, find yourself a full version on the net.
