Specs: Windows 7 x64, c2 duo 2.26ghz, 4gb ram
The harddrive was connected to my laptop while my sony video camera and usb was plugged in. I made sure that nothing else was being copied or moved and then i disconnected the video camera. when i did this, the portable harddrive stopped working but the usb continued to work. i tried using the harddrive on another computer and it still didnt work. Windows just asks me to format it to view it but i have important data on it. please help!!!

✔ Best Answer
You should never have precious files saved on only one hard drive because a hard drive can fail at any time. You should have bought two external drives and saved your files on both of them.


Test the drive with Seagate SeaTools for Windows:

If the long or extended test says the drive has failed you will have to throw it away.
