My external HDD is not working can i get the free software to recover this data
Is it not spinning up, or is it spinning but not reading?
Its is giving me option of formatting only
Getting this option can often be a symptom of a failing drive. Have you tried on different ports or on another pc?
I tried many pc but it remain the same
Sounds like a bad drive. What brand of hard drive is it? You can run a diagnostic using the drive makers diagnostic utility.
If it's an external start with a different USB cable, I've had those die on me and give weird issues but the drive itself be fine.
Separate names with a comma.
