Hi I am HOPING someone can help me… a few months ago, I had a power failure and began getting this error, I was simply able to unplug and replug and all my data would return. After a while this stopped happening and I believed the issue had resolved itself. Just the other day it happened again, I unplugged and replugged and again data returned. HOWEVER tonight it happened, I tried the old standard unplug and replug and NOTHING, the drive either wont show or if it does finally appear in my drive list when I click on it it is absolutely blank and no amount of unplugging, replugging or rebooting my entire system is changing this.
I absolutely can NOT reformat and lose data, it has photos, including of my father who died last year, videos, program data, and back up of entire websites on it. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. I have to recover the data.
