Okay this is probably a simple enough problem, and one that has been asked a million times over...
Basically my external hard drive has suddenly stopped working properly. its freezing up when i 'explore' it and i cant get to any of the files stored on it. the explorer stops responding after clicking into at most two folders.
Then a notifaction box pops up saying... "disk is not formatted. format it now?"
I cant format it because i REALLY REALLY dont want to lose the data on it. please tell me theres a simple way i can just fix it please!!
Iv had a little browse around and iv heard something about 'testDisk' or something. iv downloaded it but dont really know what im doing with it.
Can someone please direct me to what i must do to retrieve my data???????
