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.
