    on usb connection this 2.5" external 320 Gb toshiba hdd is shown as not formatted. However there is apprrox 100 gb data on this. I have tried stellar phoenix...it gives message badly corrupted...and fails to start ant operation on it. Ease us delete file recovery does not shows this external hdd. Please help to regain hdd.

    formatting is bad idea will loose up all data, must be some virus issue.
    try connecting to any other system. and run virus scan.

    The other reason maybe your HDD has got curruopted or crashed
