    Hi i am using 320GB seagate external hard disk,retrieving data from hard drive is not possible. It shows oKb in the properties. When i tried to explore the drive it show an error that
    "Disk is not formatted

    The disk in drive K is not formatted.

    Do you want to format now".

    The external hard drive is a Seagate, 320GB, Model Number: ST903203FAM2E1-RK

    Is there a way to retrieve her data? or is there a way I can repair/restore his boot sector (which I assume is corrupt)?

    Any and all suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I'm moving this to the Hardware forum where it will get better attention.
