I have an Iomega Xtl drive and when I plug it in a window opens and ask if I want to format it. I hit NO and then another instruction appears that states "E is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect".
If I go into properties it states the disk size is 0gb and that there is 0 data on it.
It does/did have important data on it. Can anyone advise what has happened and if it would be able to recover the important data?
Which Windows OS are you using? If 7 or Vista try connecting to an XP machine. See if you can get the data off it. Could be an incorrect disconnection or shutdown when drive using cashe. Win 7 vulnerable to this but XP might mighr read it correctly.
