About 2 weeks ago i bought a 300gb seagate hard drive. After the instal and format everything looked ok except all the writing on that drive was blue, but i didnt think much of it. Yesterday i did some much needed up-gradeing (p4 celeron to dual core 939) but now i cannot access the drive and windows has split it in half.
My current system is as follows,
amd 939 dual core 3800
asus a8s-x mobo
1.5 gb ram
6600 gt pci-e
40 gb ide maxtor (has xp prof and sp2)
80 gb sata maxtor
300 gb sata seagate
computer management displays my seagate haveing 1 mbr partition of 127gb and 151gb unallocated.
If i try to explore or open the drive a pop up box just opens up and asks me to format the drive.
Is there any way to at least retrieve the files from the drive or am i screwed? i have photos and music ect and the wife will not be very pleased if i have lost them
any help would be very grateful, ty in advance
