Hello!

 

My external drive suddenly become raw and it says "you have to format your hard drive before use it", but i have 950 gb work on it and i am trying to save it. 

 

1st of all i have tryed to use Partition find and mount but that method is so slow. It took me 55minuts to copy 1 file which is large just 3gb. Then i founded http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/ i have same sympton. I have tryed right like from the guide but it still didnt help me. I tryed to mount external hdd via parted magic but it shows me error

 

Run: Mount /dev/sdb

Status: Finished with error (exit status 1)

 

udevil: error 64: unable to determine device fstype - specify with -t

 

 

Sorry for my bad english and i hope you can help me.

 

Thanks in advanced.

If there is no way to fix it then i'd like to know what is the fastest way to save files to other hdd since "partition find and mount" are super slow.
