How to Recover Data from External Hard Drive?
Last time when I was in Rio, I took part in the famous Carnival there with my boyfriend and it was an unforgettable experience. We took a lot of interesting photos there and I stored them in my favored Sony external hard drive thinking that might be safe for keeping those beautiful photos there. Then I did not backup those great photos. About one week ago, one of my friends asked me to show her the photos for she was thinking of going there this summer. And she wanted to know something before setting off. Then I connected my external hard drive with my PC, it turned out to be inaccessible and the PC can not read the data on the drive. And the PC suggested me to format the external hard drive for reusing it again. I did not want to do so and I do really need those precious photos. I need help and if any one of you know how to recover data from external hard drive, please let me know. Thank you!
