USB SATA drive not seen after backup?

Using EASEUS I backed up my IDE C: hard drive to an external SATA USB drive. After a while it reported a fault.
I cannot now see this external USB drive, which was OK previously after a similar backup.
Any one with ideas? Please.

Can you see it in disk management?

Operating system?

Hi Fruit Bat/\0/\
Cannot see it anywhere, No not in disc management!
If I choose boot up menu I can see my internal hard drives, DVD drive and the USB Drive.
It looks as if the fault wiped out the drive recognition.
Cant MBR it as I cant see it in XP.

Hi Fruit Bat/\0/\
Just done a download of 'Maxblast' hard disc maintenance from the Seagate.com web site. It saw the drive and re-formatted it for me.
Must now start again and do a HD backup!
