I'm aware of that software! I can't believe I didn't even think of it.
Just to clarify, the harddrive itself is viewable / recognized by Windows. When you go to disk management it shows it's capacity. The problem is that the harddrive seems to be unallocated, like it gives you an option to "Format" it.

In some instances the freezer trick does work, especially on drives that get very hot and quit, giving a hard rap on the side of the drive might break something that's jammed up but do not plan on ever using the drive again if that even works, if it does get your data asap and be thankful.
Seriously consider getting a back up drive for future storage options
I've tried this before and with no success!

Yup! It's online. Just needs to be formatted. Increased chance of recover-ability?

Sidenote, if you're a professional photographer, then why dont you have an External hard drive to Back up your files?!
I also had a mixup between my Western Digital 750 gb and 2 tb Black Cavier. It's the 2TB that's in trouble! Yikes.
I use internal drives so it's faster! Is there a better solution for external harddrives? Like a drobo?
