My external hard drive is now saying "Drive not formatted. Format now?".
Can you recommend some hard drive rescue and repair utilities?
I know the data is still there, as there is nothing wrong with the hard drive.
Here's what happened:
- I have a laptop with an ExpressCard with a SATA port.
- There is a SATA cable running to an external hard drive.
- The ExpressCard was loose, the laptop blue screened, and I havn't been able to access the hard drive since. This is the second time this problem has happened in 6 months, and I suspect my ExpressCard might have stomped on enough sectors, so that Windows is saying "Drive not Formatted. Format now?".
- There is nothing physically wrong with the hard drive.
