Look in disk management to verify drive letter, file system etc.
You may have to recover partition & files
Search online for data recovery software to download.

http://www.easeus.com/download.htm there is a free version of he recovery software from them that works well.

Don't keep only a single copy of your files on the external drive, use the external drive as a backup of files on your computer. Or backup the files on the external drive somewhere else at least.

Hi! Guys!
I would like to share my personal experiences wit you here.
A few days ago, I was stuck under similar problems. At that time, I had lost all of my important business files by mistakenly formatting the external hard drive without any backup. So, I started to searched “data recovery tool” over the internet and finally found an external hard drive recovery freeware that recovered all my files back. So, it is really worth a shot.
I hope you guys could learn a lesson to back up your crucial data all the time from my experiences.
I hope this freeware could help much more people.
Bye!
