If the hard drive enclosure can be opened, take the drive inside & try connecting it to a PC. If it doesn't work (and your data is more precious than the warranty), give it to a professional data recovery center. If they can, they will recover your data for you. | Report abuse CocoHacker October 10, 2012 6:09:01 PM Prying open a Sealed HDD is an option, but remember IT VOIDS THE WARRANTY. | Report abuse DriveMan128 October 11, 2012 2:13:10 PM Does the Disk management show it as a healthy RAW partition? If yes, you may try to use R-Undelete. Its on-line help will show how to get your files back: Recover Lost Files from Deleted/Corrupted Logical Disks/Partitions. R-Undelete is a pay program but it allows you to estimate whether you can recover your files before buying it. | Report abuse fzabkar October 11, 2012 7:47:52 PM How does HD Sentinel detect your drive? http://www.hdsentinel.com/ How does Microsoft's UVCView utility see the external drive? http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/USB_IDs/UVCView.x86.ex...
