    Help required

    Hey guys,

    Right, I had all of my music and stuff stored on a 320GB external HDD. I sold this and transferred all of the data onto a Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB. This was in the system as D.

    I unplugged the drive and left it back in it's box for a week. 10 Minutes ago I plugged it in, nothing in my computer, so I goes to drive management (like i did the first time) and it says unreadable.

    So, question is, have I broken it? Is it a simple mistake, is it possible to get the data back? I can't think of doing anything wrong.

    Thanks,

    Peter.

    Tried the acronis tool, apparently doesnt support the drive.

    Somebody reccomended Restorer 2000, works but only 128k files, so cant get anything from the drive, all the files are on it though...

    Anybody got a free alternative?

    Try PhotoRec/TestDisk. Both are available on the System Rescue CD: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SystemRescueCD
    PhotoRec is for recovering files, TestDisk can recover partitions (make them usable again) if possible.
