Carl Posted August 8, 2011 Report Share Posted August 8, 2011 Model: LG External HDD HXG1 1TB Properties: Can not get it from "My Computer" just hangs when clicking it. I use this to store all my photos etc. I have some very important docs that i backed up and occasionally access. I tried to access a PDF doc today and got an error massage I then immediately realized something is wrong and tried to access some photos. I got them open in PICASA but not when I try to open them with Microsoft Picture Manager. I get the following error message Questions: 1) I need to retrieve all documents /backups/photos from this device back to my computer. 2) I know i can use Recuva software to get all the photos but the documents are my problem as well as the back up. 3)Can this be resolved/technically/i am proficient with screw drivers/hammers/and rocks! 4)If i can get all the data back can reformatting of the HD repair it. 5) If it is a throw away whet HDD is recommended. Thank you. C Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
