Hello Kokilema, hi, looks like your drive is failing up on you. you should back up more often. there are several ways to get your files back, here are some tips you may try.
1. Open up your computer and check for loose wiring on your drive, do this power off. 2. remove your hard drive and connect it on another computer, see if it gets detected. then back it up. you may never get a chance again. 3. if you reach this part. try swapping out the logic board of the bad hard drive with the same logic board of another hard drive of the same model. (very remote, if possible only. maybe the logic board is bad.) 4. do the same thing with the disk platters. swap a good logic board. 5. this is where the part you worry. return everything back. then try using disk manager, download this from the hard disk manufacturer website. 6. try this link 7. if you reach this part, pay for professional service. there are companies out there that offers hard drive recovery. mind you this is expensive, if the data are worth it, then go. google one on the internet under hard disk recovery companies.

I am using segate u series ST340810 hard disk. when I am formatting this hard disk this hard disk does not shows partition to format and shows messege of disk cannot access what should I do?

Hello Ravindr,

After connecting the Segate Hard Drive in your computer go to Control Panel. In Control Panel you will the option Administrative Tool. In Administrative Tool open the Computer Management and you will find the number of attached Hard Drive and the Partitions they have. If the Hard Drive you have attached is not showing the partition then there may some physical damage with the Hard Drive media. Please get your Hard Drive checked by Segate professionals and then replace the Hard Drive with new one.

1. Try first on another computer
2. If same message - you can try recovery (costly and problematic) or format it and then check what it is real capacity of it. Cheap and nasty manufacturers sell 2gb capacity chip as 4gb with some fancy formatting.

Pen drivers are notoriously unrelaible, especially if they were cheap and nasty import. In most cases it is not worth repairing, if you bought it in local store, in most cases they will exchange it without any problem for new one if they are less than 1year old.

I have few of these on my desk every week, do not store anything important on cheap and nasty, buy kingstone, or similiar for important data.

I cannot access my 320 GB simpledrive. It asks do you want to format drive?

As you are getting promt of format drive that confirms that your system is able to detect your 320 GB simpledrive.

If you are using it first time then by default you will get this promt and if you are already using it from a long time then your data which is in the drive got corrupt and that's the main reason you are getting this promt of format drive. You need to click on yes to format it.

There is no other option. You will need to format the drive and you will loose your data which you have in it.

Take Care
