    My 1 TB external HD was working fine in my PC until I connected it to a Mac, after that I can't see it in My Computer, I could only see it in Disk Management, I just want to know if there is anything I can do, can anyone tell me from the picture below if i lost all my files, if the HD is corrupt can I use one of those programs that recovers lost files, does anyone have any recommendation?

    In Disk Management right click the 931GB box and try to assign a drive letter, it should show up in My Computer if you can.

    I tried already and the only options available are "delete volume" and "help"

    See if you can read it with Test Disk.

    I have run into this a couple of times recently and the solution for me was to connect to my Ubuntu box which read the disk accurately and transferred the files when my Win7 machine wouldn't. I haven't taken the time to research this yet.
