While I was viewing the settings for my external USB hard drive, my 1 year old son clicked the "start format" button. I managed to unplug the drive within 5 seconds.
Now, when I connect the drive to my laptop (or any PC), I cannot open or read my hard drive, instead I get a message saying:
The disk in drive F is not formatted, do you want to format it now?
I believe the disk has not yet been fully formatted, some of the technicians I spoke to said my data is still on the hard drive because I immediately removed the USB cable.
Does anyone knows how to recover the data on the drive? This drive has very important work and family documents on it, and I really need them.
