Hello, I have encountered an unpleasant event. My external hard drive has stopped working. The disc is no longer readable . When I connect the disc to my computer, the system asks me to format it.

There are very important files on the disc.


Does anyone know how to help me?

Depending on what has gone on you may be able to get some, all or unfortunately none of the data back.

 

See info at the following Tips to Help You to Get Your Files Back from a Dead Hard Drive

 

Data that you truly value you make multiple back ups of so hopefully the data on this dive is a back up of data that you have available somewhere else.
