This weekend a installed the windows 7 64bit over a vista 32bit. During the installation I left my Samsung S2 HD 500gb plugged in.
After the installation the windows didn’t find a mass storage controller drive and my HD appeared as Local Drive ( F: ). When I try to access it, this msg comes up: you need to format the disk in drive f before you can use it.
I tried plugging in all usb port I could find. And even the win xp 32bit showed the same msg.
I also tried the “Easy Recovery Pro”. But it didn’t worked. When a click on any of the recovery option the software doesn´t find any hard drive in my pc.
Then I tried the “GetDataBack for NTFS”. After 24 hours of scanning, it didn’t find any of my files.
Tonight, I will try the “diskdigger” and the “Recuva”. But I´m not putting too much faith on those software due some post I read here.
I really need to recover same work data.
What do you recommend?
