Hello,
my friend borrowed my external hard drive and said he formatted it like a noob and not only did he erase everything, when i connect it to my computer now instead of reading it as flexdrive it shows up in my computer as disk j with a new empty folder...thanks in advance for the help.

I just finished saving a RAID1 volume using TestDisk. Download and install it, then take you HDD from the enclosure and install it to your system (hint: disconnect any HDDs other than the boot drive and the HDD you want to recover). TestDisk is free and has directions, including an example.

Experienced users would tell you not to write any data to the formatted drive.

There are many tools that can help including this one that helped me before.
