I recently (unsafely) disconnected my 1TB SeaGate eHDD from an XP machine. Now, when plugged into a windows7 machine, it prompts me to "format the disk before I can use it."
I have ran Recuva and it shows a bunch of random files that have been overwritten by my ACTUAL files. I believe this is a good sign as it knows my actual files exist.
blahbadfileIdontknow.dll overwritten by D:/MyFolder/MyGoodFiles
I have made a partedmagic live usb and have booted into it. However, when I mount my eHDD, it shows 372GB used out of 932GB, but the file browser shows 0 items. No files or folders on it can be seen or accessed.
I have also been running GParted for the past half hour and it has been seaching /dev/sdb partitions, /dev/sdb is my eHDD.
Can anyone offer suggestions on how I can get my eHDD back to normal? I will be on this forum for a while so I will give any extra information necessary to help you to assist me.
