New User: Partition Loss Query

#1 Post by tessar »

I have an external 1TB drive that is not showing readable. It was formatted as a fat32 for initial usage. I ran testdrive on it and no partition is showing; even after doing deep scan. I could really use some guidance on to the next step to take. direct info or pointing me to a previous post for this situation would be most helpful.

If I'm horribly screwed, I can accept that. I just wanted to recover as much of the data as possible.

thanks in advance for your time.
