Help, Ext Hard Disk not showing up
Posted 11 May 2013 - 03:07 PM
But in the middle of the transfer, my hard disk is disconnected. I don't know why it happened.
And after that, trying to plug in my hard disk again, and it was detected ( i hear the sound and it showed up on 'safely remove hardware') but it's not showing up on my windows explorer. And i can't access my data anymore. What a piece of sh*t!
I just want to know, is it possible to get the data back? I got a lot of important data in there.
I don't know what to do.

If the partition is in Raw, I can tell you a program that I used to get my data from an old HDD.

As for getting it to show up again. I would try disconnecting and shutting off the drive and then turning it back on. Also reboot your computer. Once you are back in Windows try plugging the USB back in. If it doesn't show up then, I would consider looking to see if there are any special drivers you need. If a reboot/software doesn't resolve it then call the manufacture and tell them their drive is a piece of sh*t and you want money or a replacement.

Yes, it was detected. But it is said that it was unallocated or something.
Tried it and no good. They say that it doesn't need any driver.
Maybe i'll bring this problem to my Father friend who is good at fixing this kind of stuff, and hope he is really good at it.

Grab R-Studio 6 from here and get you files back. Here is a good tutorial :Youtube Link
After the recover process format the HDD in computer management and it's back on the action.

Well i've tried using another data recovery program like Partition Find and Mount, and PC Inspector File Recovery, and no luck. Do all of the scan method, nothing found.
I got a problem on RStudio, it said that I need an R program or something, and after i click on something that should be taking me to the site to download that "R" thing, it does nothing.
