Yesterday I was greeted with a situation that can be described only as “sheer panic”.
I recently purchased a new computer and I put all of my data onto an external hard-drive... let me say that again ALL of my data – that would be all of my woodworking projects, all of the information used for LumberJocks.com and the eMag, all of my photos, all of my family photos, genealogy research (thank goodness I had used my genealogy program since purchasing the computer and the family tree information is safe) ... seeing where this is headed?
I can no longer access the data on the external hard-drive. Now, I should say that it has two partitions (?) – one for Windows (which I don’t use) and one for the Mac (which I have used for about 3 years.) The Windows section will still open (whippeee) but nada from the other partition.
I checked the utilities tools and it says that it can’t be fixed or accessed.
So, all you computer wizards, is the data lost forever and if not (please be “if not”) how do I retrieve it?
