Hello,
You can try a software recovery program such as this one:

Of course there is no guarantee that you will retrieve your files. Also be prepare to retrieve files that are corrupted. I wish you the best of luck.

I have a Fantom Drive i.5TB external hard drive.It is now showing only 31.9GB.In device manager it shows 1.5TB


What OS do you use?
Is your hard drive in a partition into Several partitions?
Perhaps other partitions that have not been formatted or has not been in initialize.
If using Windows 7 and above, possibly setting the hidden partition / drive is changed (by accident).

My computer doesn't recognize my fantom drive


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

The hard drive is faulty and we mortals cannot retrieve data from a faulty hard drive.
There are companies that can retrieve data from a faulty hard drive BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
If future with these external hard drives, it pays to have a second one so you can back up your data on the second hard drive in case the first hard drive becomes faulty.

Fantom drive MDU1000 use to work, now when I plug into the computer, it says I need to format the drive, but I know there is almost a tb worth of data that I need to retrieve.


you may need a new case with new electronics
this happens when the drive either has a corrupted file or the controller electronics has failed.

Is this an inbuilt drive or an external drive? If you're using USB, it needs a USB connection. It shouldn't need drivers as the computer will automatically detect a hard drive.

Have you tried connecting to a completely different computer to see if that recognised it?

The disk-drive inside the enclosure is problematic.
Open the enclosure, to get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access Fantom's web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive. If the warranty still is valid, they will replace it, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and transplant it into the enclosure, to "resuscitate" your device.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.
