hard drive gone crazy

well, i was running out of space so got a new samsung 750gb, arrived today.

i did a quick format, which i have done before with new drives without issue.

i began copying files over to the new drive, which went fine, i copied maybe 80gb across.

but now the drive is reading as unformatted, with 100% free space.

im confused and irritated.

i tried to view the disk with pc inspector file recovery, but it didnt show any files.

anyone seen this ? have any suggestions ? know of any free software that can fix this ?

would be really helpful :P

  1. well.... what you can do is reformat the drive with full format!
  2. well, i really want to get the data back that i saved to it, rather than format it ....... i thought that was obvious .... :\
