Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
The external hdd using regulerly but one day it was not open so format the hdd.now how can recover data from 500gb external hdd.i think some bad sector is in that hdd.
OK! Don't panic! Nowadays, the formatting process will not actually erase the contained data on a memory card or hard drive. The data is still there and only becomes invisible. That's why one always has chances to get back their lost data back from a formatted hard drive as long as it is not overwritten by anything new.
So, I hope you've not saved anything new on your hard drive.

OK! The bad sector is always the terrible killer of memory card/hard drive data. Therefore, if you are sure there are some bad sectors, part or even all of your original data may be gone already. That often depends on how badly your drive is damaged.
But, that's not to say, you have no any hope to get back your back. In fact, as long as they are not completely killed, you do have possibilities to restore them back.
Simply go try a formatted hard drive data recovery freeware that always can help easily restore all inaccessible data back completely from a formatted drive:
It has offered a special "Format Recovery" mode for you to process your formatted drive data recovery problem.
Note: Next time, you'd better never format your drive or memory card without any data backup.

Well you should have gone in and marked the sectors that you think are bad, by formatting it odds are you wiped the data off it, you can try a low level recover but I dont think your going to find much. Sorry format means format.
