I recently plugged my hard drive into my computer only to find that it came up on My Computer as "Local Disc F" not as the hard drive name. when I selected it, the computer froze and a few minutes later, it came up with "Disc not formatted. Format it now?". I went onto command prompt and typed "dir f:\" only to recieve the prompt "Data error reading drive f:\".
Is the portable hard drive broken and is there any chance that i can repair it and recover the data on it?
