Ok, so my hdd was fine (160gb), i built a new system and when i plugged the HDD, i cant access it as it wants formatting. i tried the HDD in another system with the same spec as my 1st but get the same error.
does anyone know of any good program i can use to recover the date. By the way there was 30GB free on it and when i check in bios, it shows as a 30GB hdd!!!!
