    Deleted the wrong files from an external hard drive when plugged into a tablet. When I plugged the hard drive back into the tablet to restore the file, I am getting the following error message: :L/ is unavailable, the location is unavailable and it advises to make sure the drive is connected / plugged in....which it is. Is there anyway to restore the files???!!

    use this recovery software called recuva. free and small. can also be used from a usb.
    http://filehippo.com/download_recuva/

    read the info on the side of the download page about recovery options.
    also, its important not to use the external drive.. until running a scan with recuva, as the data may be lost.
