I have Samsung HD103UJ 1TB hard disk and i use it as External. One day i transfer some file and the power shut down.. so when i open the PC again the HD doesn't show in My Computer only in Safely Remove Hardware.. i try to format it with Win Xp CD but it doesn't show too.. the only place it shows that i have plunged in the HD is in Safely Remove Hardware Icon. I have very important file in the HD and i new help to fix it or restore this files.

Thank you.

You can try recovery software such as recuva or eause but if they cant see your file your only alternative is to send the drive out for professional data recovery which is very expensive.

If you do have many VERY important files there, you can download a free hard drive recovery tool to get back your data from It works well on a drive.
If it doesn’t make a sense, you are supposed to consult a data recovery company or specialist instead.
You should have made data backups of all your important data before.
