USB hard disk problem


Recommended Posts

I use a small Toshiba USB external hard disk drive as a storage overflow/backup for my Dell laptop. Yesterday, after powering up everything, I can no longer access the drive.  It normally comes up in Windows Explorer as Toshiba plus drive letter plus capacity, but now just shows as Local Disk plus drive letter.  When I click on it to access the drive, Explorer stops responding.

Initial thoughts are that the boot sector may be corrupted preventing access to the data.  Can anyone recommend a disk recovery program (preferable free) that might help solve the problem?
