HELP!!!! Recovery software for External Hard Drive

  matt-few 08:44 21 Mar 08

I backed up some files from my pc to one of my external Maxtor hard drives last night. Checking the files afterwards, the drive is now showing as a Local Drive in Windows Explorer, but I am unable to access any of the 200GB of files. The 17GB of files I transferred last night I still have on my internal hard drive, but what can I do about the rest.

Maxtor have DIY Software for HDD Data Recovery but it's $120 US Dollars. Is this a good buy or are there any better and cheaper solutions to try first?

I would really appreciate some help

Many thanks
