Hi All,

My Maxtor external hard drive has been working fine, until yesterday when i click on it it says to re format the drive.

I have downloaded recovery software, but the drive cant even be seen.

Your help would be really appreciated as it has photos on there, which are really important.

Kind regards

this software. i will show u the link will tell u if you format it in ntfs and fat that is the best way to tell. or easiest i should say.

i will do it myself because I also need a big file i downloaded back to my computer.

if you just want to pull the data u had back you can do so there are many software out there. for example this one smart data recovery which can guide you step by step.

if you know how to download it don't let me know
but if u want to learn how to use it let me know.
