I have a USB hard drive enclosure and in there i have 40Gb HDD with all my website design files on, when i leave for school i turn it off at the back and then leave.

I returned today, No one had been in my extension of the house or my room(where my PC is) so it couldn't have been meddled with, i turned it on to start work and it comes up with...

I NEED the content off that drive. There is no way i can live without it. ( im exaggerating a little.)

If anyone can help, please contact me ASAP.

Regards,
Jake :victory:

Try using recovery programs, it could be that you haven't lost much of the disk. I got the same problem when my external hard drive was attacked by my brother with magnets. It turned out that it had (fortunately) only corrupted the first few Mb and the last few Mb on the HDD, and the rest of the data could be recovered.

I used Runtime Software's GetDataBack for NTFS, which worked fairly slowly (took about 2 hours to recover 90Gb of Data) but did the job perfectly.
