My XHDD (external hard drive disk) is unreadable. I can't access it, or read the files. It is supposed to autorun, but doesn't. When I double click it in My Computer, it claims the disk isn't formatted, and asks my to format.
As we all know, formatting a hard drives erases all the data - all 500 GB .
I know there are tools to recover hard drives. I tried using SpinRite, booting it up from a CD, to find out that it can't read 'sector 1' or something. There might be a recovery tool out there, though.
But I don't want to send my XHDD away to Seagate, so I was wondering if anybody could help me out. Help me fix my baby.
