Hi guys recently I tried plugging my Hitachi 2TB external drive on my xbox to use 16GB (xbox's maximum storage on a external device) of my hard drive to store things from my xbox, but whent i said configure it started a formatting process so I unplugged before it started. When I replugged it on my PC it didn't recognised it and when I re-initialized it and set it on J: it said the file system was RAW instead of NTSF and the PC says I need to format the hard drive. Is there a way I won't need to fromat it because I have plenty of photo's videos and over 200go of files that are lost if I format it .. PLEASE HELP ME

BTW: sorry for my bad english :S :)

Try using testdisk, it could recover the partition data off the drive.

Don't store files you only have in one place on an external drive, keep the files on your computer and use the external as a backup.
