the data would be nice to have then what I have found to work sometimes is to connect the external to a computer running linux and copying the data to that computer and then reformatting the external and putting the data back. You may not have access to a computer running Linux so you could try using a linux live CD and booting to that. Since you don't have much room on your computer hard drive you would need to attach another storage device so you would have some place to copy the data to.
