I was installing win xp as a virtual machine on my laptop, it was being installed from an image resides inside my external hard disk and suddenly my hard disk cable got losen and I got my hard disk corrupted.
Now, I am getting error which says
"you need to format hdd before using it"
as I click on cancel it gives a cyclic redundancy check error.
window says its RAW.
I have tried chkdsk; testdisk
but it didn't work.
I dont want to lose my 500 gb data and I dont have any backup either.
thanks in advance for any help.
