Question about Seagate ST307504FPA1E3-RK FreeAgent Pro 750 GB USB / eSATA / FireWire 400 External Hard Drive

1 Answer

Accidentally deleted partition

While reinstalling Windows XP, I accidentally selected to delete the partition of the external Seagate hard drive, thinking it was a partitioned part of the C drive used for recovery. I tried to use Partition Manager 2005 and 2009 to undelete the partition, with the assistance of Paragon tech support. It has not worked, yet. They suggested removing the hard drive from the case and connecting it directly to the computer, then running the recovery program of Partition Manager. Do you have any suggestions?

How to Recover Deleted Files from Seagate Hard Drive in Windows XP?


Accidently delete important filesusing Shift+Delete keys in Windows XP? Can't get valued pictures back from therecycle bin after you emptied it? How to retrieve data from 'not recognized'hard drive and reconstruct inaccessible partition?

You'reLuck!Deleting or formatting won't make the data erased permanently.Thosedeleted data are still stored in the hard drive. They're just invisible orinaccessible.Only the FAT or NTFS table is erased (the information about wherethose data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors ofthe hard drive.
So long as those deleted data are not overwritten by new data, it's highlypossible to recover them. The most effective way is to rely onsome data recovery program.

Tenorshare DataRecovery is a powerful data recovery program that can easily recover lost,damaged, formatted and accidently deleted data from your laptop or computerhard disk and all kinds of USB media drives.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deletedor formatted.
This program is equipped with four critical modules:"deleterecovery", "format recovery", "partition recovery" and"raw recovery". It can recover data after deeply scanning yourstorage device to look for lost data due to drives crash, virus corruptedpartitions, system sabotage, physical damage etc.
It supports for almost all Windows systems like Windows XP,Windows7,Vista,2000,2003,NT and common file systems (FAT12, FAT16,FAT32 and NTFS).You can get ithere: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

It can RecoverLost Data Due to

Accidental deleting

» "Shift + Delete" without backup
» "Delete All" when deleting useless files
» Cut files instead of copying and pressing"Cancle" button
» Emptying Recycle Bin after delection
Formatting
» "Media/Drive is not formatted would you liketo format now?"
Virus infection/attack
Unexpected power off
Others
» Factory setting of device
»System reinstalling but want to retrieve the oldfiles
» Inaccessible partition or drive
» Dead hard drive
» Losing files during transferring files fromstorage device to PC/laptop
» Pulling out card while the camera is on
» Removing out storage devices not in "saferemove the drive"
» Turning off the camera during a write process

Then,howto retrieve deleted files?


Withinfour steps, you can get back your data:
1.Select deleted recovery. It will take you a few minutes to scan your storagedevice;
2. heck the deleted datayou want to recover;
3.Select a path folder for the recovered files;
4.Click "OK" to finish recovery.

Onemore tip:

If the hard drive can't be detected(means can't showup in 'My Computer' as a drive letter like C: drive),you can try this way.Putthe hard drive in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Thenwhile it's still cold plug it into the computer.If it fails, you will have to go to a recoveryoffice but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whetherthey can recover the data or not is not guarantee.

You will have to "destroy" the data that is on the disk... If that is ok then:

1. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage" from the drop-down menu.
2. Select "Disk Management"
3. A graph of the disks in the computer will appear.
4. Go to "Full Screen" (maximize your window).
5. Find the Seagate disk (may be marked "Unknown").
6. If you are absolutely sure that this is the Seagate out of the Sony PS3 .. .then right-click on the graph that represents the Seagate and "Delete Partition" (The system will not allow you to delete your boot drive partition.
7. Once it has been deleted, you can "Create Partition" (choose "Primary" partition) and do not use a fast (quick) format.
8. You probably know the rest.... (Create drive, FAT32, etc.)

Hope this is what you want...

Seagate drive partition


This is fairly straightforward using the Windows XP tools.

IMPORTANT, copy everything you want to keep from partition F otherwise it will be deleted. Drive G will not be affected.
  • Right click 'My Computer' >'Manage' then click disk Management.
  • Right click your drive F and 'Delete Partition'.
  • You now have 210GB unused space on the drive.
  • Right click the unused space and "Create Partition".
  • Specify the size of the new partition to your requirements or create more partitions until the free space runs out.
  • You can then right click and format the new partitions. 'Quick Format' is fine unless you have been experiencing disk problems.
To swap around drive letters in Disk Management:-
  • Right click the drives and 'change drive letters', to X, Y or Z or whatever
  • Now you can change the drive letters back to F, G, H or whatever order you want them in
I'm sure you get the idea, you just have to change the letters of the drives to unused letters to make a space in the sequence (not that any sequence really matters)

Good luck
