Data recovery help- external hard drive showing up as unallocated
I have a 2tb WD Essentials drive that had problems with a loose usb connection. I think the drive got messed up some how with it connecting and disconnecting. So I purchased an new enclosure to solve the issue and now the drive shows up in disk management as "unallocated".
Last night I tried a program called active partition recovery and with that I was able to actually see all folders I need and all the sub folders. Problem is that I don't think it fixed anything.
So....does anyone have any suggestions on how I can recover the data on this drive? I'm assuming that once I pull it off I can format the drive and that should get the drive up and running again?
I'm going to try test drive and getdataback ntfs tonight and see what I can come up with.
