Could anyone give me some advice on repairing or recovering data from a HDD external hard drive. I pulled out the USB while transferring some files into it and now when i plug the usb of the external hard drive into the computer it says its corrupted or unreadable, and i get an option to format it, but i dont wanna lose the data in the hard drive. Also, i cant seem to safely remove the hard drive, it says the drive is in use. what should I do? is there any data recovery or repair program i can get?

I have a similar problem. All of the applications went "Not responding" after i clicked a file from my WD portable HD. My computer hung for a long time about 25mins. So I pulled out the USB cable then restarted. When I plugged in the USB cable again, the drive doesn't show up anymore. How do I "force" my computer to read, let alone find, the portable HD?
I have had exactly the same problem as soloflight- WD passport, not responding when trying to open files, computer jams, now doesnt recognise drive. I really hope someone has the answer as this is my final year at university and everything is on there- sore lesson to learn for not backing things up- I really hope theres a way to fix it.
