    I just replaced the motherboard in my computer. Before doing so I moved all my files over to an external hard drive. Now that drive is not available to me. I used Disk Management to view it and it said it was Unallocated, did some research and was able to use Partition Magic to make the disk recognizable but now when I try to acces the drive I get the message that the disk is not formatted.

    How can I get the data off of this drive? I have a lot of information I need.

    Can any other computers read this drive?
