I unplugged my hard drive for a few days and when I plugged it back in, I get this message:

Is there anyway to change the hard drive's file system without formating the drive? I'm not interested in losing my data (or doing a recovery and recovering half of what I need).

I'm using Windows 7, I believe the hard drive is a Seagate Baracuda.

You can try sfc scan or CHKDSK.

Chkdsk is unable to run on RAW drives. Data-recovery recovers everything except what I needed, haha.
