so I used EaseUS Data Recovery Tool Wizard as it was the only application that could successfully read my hard-drive.
My external hard-drive fell from the table and since then it's converted from an NTFS to a RAW drive. When I plug it in, the computer recognises it but cannot open it as I get an "Incorrect Function" error. Applications like Disk Management can read it too, however it takes a very long time to load, since the HDD takes so long to read.
EaseUS Data Recovery Tool took about 8~ hours to read the disk, but was able to find all 600GB+ of data. I can preview images, text documents and music if I double click them (takes awhile), but when I try to recover the data, it hangs on 'Recovering File' and does not work, no % was made after 10+ hours. This was attempted again with recovering one image, no % was made after 10+ hours again.
Any alternatives to my situation? Is there other applications that I could try? Or is there something up with my EaseUS application?
