    I recently bought a (180gb) external MAXTOR hardrive. It was connected via FIREWIRE.
    Well it was working fine formatted as NTFS. But all of a sudden I go to access it and it cannot be recognized...and it looks like the file format is RAW.

    I have know clue what happened.
    I have some criticle data on it that I need. my last resort is one of those recovery services.

    But isn't there a tool or something I can repair so I can atlease get the data off?

    Any Ideas?


    Thanks
    Ken

    I've used this before, and it seems to work fine..

    Easy Recovery Pro

    Has a trial that allows you to see files that have been deleted - so you know if it can get your files back. Good luck!
