    The File Allocation Table or other boot table on the drive is corrupt. You
    may attempt to retrieve data from the drive using specialized and expensive
    software, but it is unlikely that the data is in a useable format.

    You probably had write caching enabled on the disk and rebooted before the
    MFT was written back to disk. You should always turn write caching off on
    external drives.

    Go to this site and download PC Inspector..

    http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm

    Read up on how to work the program, because the more passes you have to
    make, the less chance there is of recovery.. make each pass count..
