i was transferring data between two external hard drives and the power cable was removed accidentally!
now i cannot access the external hard drive at all when ever i plug it into my mac it asks me to 'initialize' it, however when i click this i cannot verify or repair the disk!
the information on the drive is very important, is there anyway i can get access to the hard drive or transfer the data off?

appreciate any help

First, don't try to initialize the disk until you get your files back.
I use Restorer Ultimate for Mac to recover data from corrupted disks.

Hi sorry for the late reply, i tried the software you recommended but the process will apparently take 2 months.... i left it overnight hoping the countdown would drop eventually but it didn't and unfortunately i cant leave my comp plugged in for 2 months as thats a little long lol

is there any other software or actions you would reccommend ?
