Hello All Friends, :hello: 

My name is Ashok, I have a Fantom portable Hard Disk 1 TB.....and I've been using it since 1 Year.

Recently, I'm unaware of what happened to it, If I connect it to my laptop or any other PC, it is asking me to format.

It appears that your external HDD has become corrupted. Does the error occur on all computers? Have you tried connecting to another computer.

Try this application to recover your files:

TestDisk can probably help with this.

That program can help you resotre the file system if that's what the issue is. It could also be a physical error on the drive, in which case you probably can't recover with software.
