Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
Hi I have a maxtor personal storage 3200. 150 gig. and I cant access it I looked and it shows in my computer when i click on it it gives me that error.the file or directory is corrpted and unreadable.I ran chkdsk.and nothing. So I went to disk manager and the drive is there but it says it is [raw] not nfts.what to do next If I formatt it to nfts I will lose all data.please help.
Hello, from my understanding, the external hard disk with RAW file system often cannot be easily accessed before you follow the Windows message to format it. However, in most cases, since many people get such RAW format drive error unexpectedly and leave much important data inside this drive, they also cannot easily format this drive to erase everything. That's why people feel depressing. However, do not panic! There are also solutions for people to recover inaccessible drive information back.
Merely use RAW file system external drive file recovery software to scan this RAW format drive and rescue everything possible back before any format.
Therefore, in your case, also stop using your drive and go try some related external drive data recovery software.
Hope you can take desired data back with ease.

Hi and thanks for writing back. I found that since the drive turned to a raw that windows will not read it.I don't know why it turned from ntfs to raw but it did. so I downloaded the O&O file recovery trial ver.to see if I could recover the pics. and movies.It took 5 hrs. to run and it recoverd everything.now I have to buy the software. but I know it is still all there.this software will even recover reformatted drives.Anybody that gets the same error mess. look to see if your file system has changed.If so it looks like recovery software is the only way to go.I have other good info on this and other maxtor hdd I will check back on post and write if you have sim.probs.
