hi,
You might need to reinstall your system drivers,if that doesn't help get this tool it might help to retrieve your files

Howdy,

Start with chkdsk, it may just save you.
If that doesnt work comeback and report your findings.

thanks esther and Woodmann

@esther : the link i dead

@Woodmann : chkdsk gave me this message
Quote:

The type of the file system is NTFS.
Unable to determine volume version and state. CHKDSK aborted.


Then i tried "Power data recovery" and it recovered everything with absolute ease.

Thanks everyone

I had the same problem and used Handy Recovery, took the files and reformated the drive.
