You didn’t do anything wrong. You got a faulty drive which still should be under warranty. The program called “Partition Table Doctor” may help you http://www.download.com/Partition-Ta...ml?tag=lst-0-2 . You don’t have many cycles left before full drive failure. So work fast, DO NOT DEFRAG OR SCANDISK. Keep the drive on only when you are trying to recover data.

yeah your drive is dead and or dying, you can contact seagate and they will replace it, as for recovering the data there are some companies that deal in data recovery and can almost always get it, i would only suggest this if you REALLY need that data because it will cost alot to have it done, but if ghost cant do it then thats about your oly shot.

ill see what i can do about the data...im just wondering if the drive is realy damaged or its just something temporary and if i format it will work again because as i said before its only about a year or less old and has worked perfect with no problems what so ever and just turned faulty over night.

well nothing worked the only thing i managed to do is to salvage most of my files with File Scavenger 3.0 but not all file were recovered...i would say about 80% so the drive is still screwed think ill format it now and see if it is damaged or just got messed up some how as in messed up MBR or Partition or something
