I have a HP SimpleSave MD1000h and the USB connected to the circuit board broke off.
I dissembled the external case and extracted the HD. Using a HD toaster I was able see the drive but it shows as unallocated and ask if I want to format it. I know better not to format it. Is there anyway to recover the data off the drive? We have all of your family photos on it and need to recover it. I know there are data recovery places and will send the drive to them if necessary but I wanted to check to see if I could do it myself.
Thanks in advance.
