Hi, got a Seagate 3Tb hard drive divided into 2 partition using MBR. The formatting of the partition is losted, unable to retrieve all my video and document files. When I plugged this hard drive into my m/b, Win 7 Pro 64 bit does not see and load the hard drive. However, if I load it via a Vantec external hard drive dock, Windows will see it after a while and show one partition drive letter. After that Windows will keep prompting me to format the partition over and over again. Also, the partition will appear and disappear over again and again in my computer display screen. Should I go ahead and format the partition and then use a file recovery program to recover all my files back?
