1TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external HD

Hi I accidentally started to quick format my 1TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external HD. After only 2 or three seconds I realized my mistake and cancelled the format immediately. When I try to access my info on the HD now, it says that I should format the HD before I can use it again. How do I retrieve my information of approximately 1TB! The message says that it does not contain a recognized file system

  1. Use some recovery software. I don't have much experience there, so I don't know which programs are the best/not scams/free, but one should work. Don't use the drive AT ALL until you do the recovery. Power it off.
