    I bought a Maxtor 160 GB hard drive. It worked fine for about a wekk, then it stopped and wouldn't mount. I was wonderign if there are any suggestions for recovering files? The windows check did scroll past a lot of file names so at least a lot of them are still there in some form, but Norton can't find anythign and tells me the disc isn't formatted. Any suggestions?

    AFAIK, you can't recover really recover files. I don't know of any free utility that will actually do this. I'd have expected Norton Utilities or whatever that piece of junk is called would do it, but in your case I guess it can't. [​IMG]
