I have a Dell external hard disk and when I plug it in it shows the disk name alone and nothing more and when tried to open it, it's asking for format. How should I recover my data before formatting??? Can I do the recovery on a Linux based system??
my widows 8.0 is unable to display my external hard disk which has important files and works well on Mac! I know Windows uses the NTFS formatting which is "more secure" and for the ext. hard disk to work on both, I need to format it as NTFS but I have important files on the hard disk which I want to copy on the windows machine and it's not even displaying on "Computer".
