Hi there!
When I just got rid of some nasty infection thanks to our Malvere colleagues my HD started to make funny noises and now the noises stopped but I simply canīt access the drive anymore (it says that the drive is not formatted and if I want to format it now).
Please would anyone tell me if I have any chances or is it the end of my HD? Iīm gutted :-(
Thanks a lot

You might only have a corrupted partition table on the drive. You can fix that in most cases with 'Partition Table Doctor':

Or this one here: http://www.diskinter...ition-recovery/

Worth a try for 350GB drive, especially if you have precious files on it.

Hi there Pip!
Thanks for yr reply, I have downloaded the trial version, but I still havenīt had time to read the instructions to perform it...
You reckon I should purchase the whole product, or will the trial one do for me?
Thanks a lot!
