So my laptop was broken, I got all my files backed up on my HDD. I just did it by copy and paste them in folders. Now I wanted to transfer them back. (just Photos and Videos).
I have an Acer and I clicked on Acer Backup Manager. After doing that, he made my HDD as a RECOVERY :F. I have a 1 TB HDD and now only the RECOVERY :F is seen with 32GB.
I looked at the Disk Management and saw 800+ GB unallocated. and the other was 32gb :F.
I deleted the volume of :F but now I have 900+ GB of unallocated something.
When I plug my HDD into the laptop, it asks me to format. BUT I DONT WANT TO LOOSE MY PHOTOS AND VIDEOS :( 

HELP ME Pleasee! (Seagate Back up plus portable drive 1TB)

The Asus utility warned you all data on the drive would be lost.

Try using this unformat utility and see if it can recover the previous partition; I just hope its not too late for you.

Most of the time it is caused by virus, you may try a virus scan software.
