Hi,

Something to try first (if it is able to run):

Open a CMD window, and run as administrator. Change to F: (your USB drive). Type chkdsk /f and hit enter. Post the results here when you have finished.

Regards,
Golden

Sometimes if you take the drive apart and set the platters on a black cloth you can view the files with a strong set of reading glasses. The only downside to this is 2 fold ,

1) The drive will have no warranty

2) you would have displayed a level of incompetence second to none and should just go back to pen paper and a file cabinet.

Ok seriously . It has to be self evident how to open the enclosure it has to snap together or more likely then not be held with screws ,, or have you googled that specific model enclosure and looked how to open it that way ?

N/O? Can you please explain that again?

Try a chkdsk (WITHOUT the /f switch) and run that - it wont make any changes to your files. Post the results here please.

Dismantling your hard drive wont fix this issue if its a problem with the file structure, so I wouldn't try that just yet.

I don't think taking the drive apart will help. Clearly it is being recognised so why not try a recovery software. Recuva would be a good start. You are best using the deep scan. The software is free and I have had very good results with it. Download it from here;
Recuva - Download
I would try this before the more invasive method of dismantling the drive. One false move and you are done for whereas Recuva may not work but it will do no harm!

When you tried Recuva what do you mean"Nothing happened"? How long did it take to scan your disc and what message did you get?
