    Guys, I've just lost 900GB of data.
    At least 500GB of movies, TV shows
    Rest P...

    It was a 1TB WD external drive. Showing as RAW and asking to format before use. I've just recovered from Heart Attack and now feeling a suicide tendency...........

    Trying with "Recover My files", but its recovering lots of 10MB files (I swear minimum file size in that drive was of 300MB)

    Any other fcuking s/w plz...................

    I've had good successes with PC Inspector.

    I've been lucky so far. All the major data recovery I've had to do were for others. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Hey

    Try Recover my files ...... Good at recovering files
    PC inspector File Recovery .......Recovers most files ... but cant recover names
    My Best bet will be Acronis Partition recovery Software .... I have recovered whole partition from formated hard drives with it ..... Do give it a try ... Its not free ....but U know ....

    All the best. hoping that you may recover at least 50% of the data.

    Holy Crap! I'm just planning to buy a 1TB internal WD drive myself. By reading all these horror stories of crashing, it just gives me the heebie-jeebies!

    Hope your recover your partition man. I can't imagine myself being in that situation & that too without a proper back up done. My 320GB WD HDD had also crashed about a year back. Although it gave me prior symptoms before dying. So had time to back up all my data on DVD's. I suppose this is a huge lesson learnt for regular back up albeit having a higher capacity drive. The higher the capacity, the bigger the risk of data loss. :-(

    @rhitwick, if you feel that that data is extremely important, you better contact folks at Steallar Phoenix Data Recovery or atleast someone from your city if they can recover. It's better to put this in professional hands than to do experiments with it.

    the more data you write on that HDD, the less the chance is to get a full recovery.

    once the data is recovered, get another 1Tb HDD and use it as backup HDD.
