Recovering external HHD, use of drive, not data. Tags: Storage Hard Drives Seagate Last response: June 20, 2014 11:31 PM in Storage Share mattyk June 20, 2014 11:25:05 PM OI recently purchased a Seagate expansion 1TB. Hard drive failed and person using it attempted reformatting. I (ignorantly) tried fixing with TestDisk I have no partitions. I care not for the data (unlike everything i have found online) I just want to use the HDD. Can i fix it? REPLY: few weeks old, but i believe it corrupted due to improper removal. I would return but lost receipt, but i read i can repartition because health of drive is good, just cant seem to find how.
