    so yesterday i had 200+ gigs worth of stuff on an ntfs partition labeled storage, then i restarted my computer and everything was gone, the drive is no longer labeled "storage" my computer says i have to format the drive if i want to use it. if i try to go to the command prompt and chkdsk it, it says "the type of file system is RAW. CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives. if i try to right click it in my computer and check for errors there, it simply does nothing, the data isn't critical or anything, but it would be nice to get it back, this is the second Seagate hard drive ive had driving me crazy within the past month.

    I installed paragon utility manager after this happened and it says both partitions are "invalid" I also ran the Seagate tools diagnostic check and got these results for file structure test

    Seagate tools results


    File structure tests failed on both partitions:

    partition1: the active and primary parition w/ winxp on it said : there are one or more errors found in metadata file records.

    partition2: (the part. that disappeared, and is now an empty, unformatted, "raw" drive) says : basic structure corruption

    seagate tools did not give any kinds of options to fix the problems though.
