Hello everyone!
I am facing the following problem.
My external hard drive is 300 GB in size. The system sees it in RAW format, although it used to be in FAT format.

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy......

I still have important files on the drive.

Maybe there is someone who can help me?
 
I don't think this question belongs in a coding forum.
Also, the information you are giving is cryptic, incomplete, and partly irrelevant. You may want to take some effort to explain the issue in clear detail.
What exactly do you mean with "The system sees it in RAW format" ? Evidence ? And what do you mean "it used to be in FAT format" ? What have you changed ?

Take a look at spinrite. Here is a link

 
So I connected the disc to other computers running Windows and Linux. I even took the disc out of the packaging and connected it directly via the SATA interface, but it didn't work.


I managed to find a solution on the internet.

I came across this article and followed it step by step.

Data Recovery Software For RAW File System

It cost me $97.95, but that's nothing compared to sending the disc to a specialist. I risked losing my files forever. But I can't afford to pay the big bucks.

The following is how I proceeded.

Firstly, I managed to create a copy of the damaged disc with the help of "HDD Raw Copy Tool".

I downloaded "Hetman Partition Recovery", the program found my RAW drive in FAT format and started a full scan. It found most of my files and successfully recovered them. Of course, not all files could be recovered, but I was lucky: I was able to recover the most important files.

And yes, make copies of important files (discs) for the future.


Thanks to everyone who tried to help me!!!!.

Good that you have it sorted. Your original post makes a bit more sense to me now.
