I have an external hard drive where I keep all of my music, movies and digital photos. I can do without the music and movies though it it a punch in the gut. I am now missing a little over 3500 songs, and 40-50 movies but that I can live with. I also had 5 years worth of digital pictures all my family pictures wedding pictures and baby pictures of three children. Needless to say I have to find a way to at least get my pictures back.
When I ran the system restore disks the first time I had left my external hard drive on. The disk ran for only 5-10 seconds before i realized it and turned it off. The process did get rid of my problem on the internal hard drive. But for the few seconds that the external drive was on, The disk managed to suspend my drive.
When I try to access it from explorer or anywhere else for that matter, I get a screen that tells me the drive is not formatted. If I have it reformatt the drive It will permanently delete my files. At least that is what I am lead to belive. so I am stuck with 200 gigs of suspended files. I need help I have not been able to find software to recover my files. Any suggestions?
