I need some help recovering data from my 1.5 TB Freeagent External Hard drive. It has about 700 GB of music, photos and documents. I believe it is an NTFS file system but started out by showing 0 bytes free of 0. I have tried changing the drive letter and letting windows scan and fix the drive. It is now visible and showing 800 GB free of 1.5 TB. Although when I try to open the drive I get an I/O error.
I have tried using easus data recovery but it is showing that it will take 772 hours to scan. Which is way to long. I do have a linux machine (ubuntu) which I am able to mount the drive on to. However, when I open the window the files are not showing.
The most important thing I want to do is get the files off of the hard drive. I would also like to be able to use the hard drive again but we will see.
Thanks for any help that is given.
