Double click on My Computer, Right click on the device, select Format. This will not remove all the files but will turn off all the flags pointing to the files. For all intents and purposes, to the honest user, the drive will appear to be empty.

If you require more security ... please ask your question again stazting what you have done.

Unfortunately I formated my BUFFALO Ext HDD (HD-PE160U2). While restoring the data, I stopped the scanning inbetween. After that its not detecting from any system or laptop. Can u pls suggest me any...


Dear Shaji,

I think u used File recover software for recovering the file. Same thing happened to me also. My brother got one HDD from his friend. I will explain u, how to recover or to detect HDD.

I have a suggestion.

I think u r believing in god. So first pray and put the HDD in USB port. After that also, if u are getting same issue means, you can give this HDD to some other great intelligent beautiful people... Like your MACHU (cousin)

Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.

My Buffalo drivestation 1TB was working ok until I switched pc of


Hi Sandra,

From the sounds of it you powered off your laptop while the Buffalo drive was connected.

If this is the case you have most likely damaged the partition and possibly a small amount of the data on the drive.

If you don't have anything crucial on the drive you should be able to go into Disk Manager and reformat it, this will make it usable again.

If you have files on the drive you cannot afford to lose then you will need the help of a data recovery pro, but this type of failure is pretty simple for them to recover from in most cases.

Comment back telling me if the data needs recovery or not, if it does, include you Country, State and City and I will refer you to an appropriate Pro, if not let me know it's ok to format and I will provide you with the steps you require.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
