    Turned on PC today and noticed my backup drive was missing, looked in bios and it is listed there ok. :eek:
    Disk management says that it's "unreadable" !!! :eek:

    This is my main BACKUP drive with EVERYTHING on it ........... is this ddrive salvagable ? Will i be able to get any or all the contents back?
    If so, How ?

    while i know this will sound crazy, it works. take the crive out of the computer put it into a ziplockbag make sure to get all the air out and freeze the drive. as soon as u take it out of the freezer plug it in and grrab as many files as u can.

    but before u do make sure u have exausted all other options such as software and cable check
