disc initialising

  stevediggo 02:16 07 Oct 2009

I have had a drive failure on my sata main drive, i have connected it to my external caddy with correct wires etc, it is in my device manager but not on my computer page, gone to disc management and says disc not initiated, but when i try to initiate it it tells me disc not ready, starting to panic now as lots of very important docs which i thought were backed up but were not, can anyone please help me
very desperate now thank you

If you initialise and format you will lose everything.

you need to run a recovery program on the drive
