Solved Help lost data recovery. Thanks. Tags: Hard Drives Data Recovery Partition Storage Last response: May 29, 2014 11:18 PM in Storage Share Anonymous a b G Storage May 30, 2010 4:44:12 AM Hi. I have a 320 Gb Sata hard drive with a single partition; full of data. (its a data drive only; no system partition). Recently, it got corrupted, because when I install it, it says, "this drive is not formatted, do you want to format it now?" By using 'Active Partition Recovery Professional' software, I have been able to "bring back" or "view" the lost partition and all its folders and files in this software. However, in Windows explorer, I still get the same command. "drive not formatted...". Can anyone guide as to how to view the data in Windows explorer? Thanks and Regards.
