I have a Seagate external hard drive that we were using as a storage unit for the xbox one. This hard drive has videos and music that I had installed prior to our using it on the xbox. I didn't want to loose those files. we did not format the drive for use on xbox however now when i try to use the drive on my pc windows 10 the file box says unallocated. Is there a way to recover the files on this disc?
external drive shows partition unallocated

Couple of questions if I may;
Have you tried accessing the data on any other computer.
How much data is there that you are hoping to recover (some free trial programs such as Easeus have a cap of 2GB before charging to use their recovery software).
How much free storage space is/was available on the drive previous to this happening.

i did try accessing from another computer and i still cannot read the disc files. My other external hard drives work properly. This 1tb drive had about six hours worth of videos from my go pro that i was hoping to recover . I don't know exactly how much file space, possibly around 200gb?
