About 3 weeks ago I did a system recovery of my computer.

Knowing this would erase all my data, I sought to save everything on an
external hard drive. I got a Verbatim 160 GB, and downloaded (I thought)
everything to it - it seemed to work.

After recovery was finished, I have not been able to get my data from the hard drive.

Can anyone help me, or am I screwed?

Can you see the data at all on the drive, but you just can't copy it back over? Or does the data not appear at all? If the data is there, but you can't copy it, you might want to try removing the drive from the enclosure and just hooking it up to your system as a secondary drive, and see if you can copy it that way. If it still won't copy, I'd recommend a program like R-Studio to recover the data from the drive.
