Hi,
One of my drive which is NTFS file System has become a RAW file system.
I could not access the Drive.
I could access only through a software "GetDataBack for NTFS" to see the data.

But i dont have a License Key to copy the files.
Pls provide a solution to get the Data back from the Drive.

Thanks,
akiles

You need to purchase GetDataBack to access the recovered files.
Purchase the license key and enter it into the open program. Then copy everything you need.

Sounds like the partition on that drive may have been corrupted, or it could be failing physically. Try physically taking out the drive, then reconnecting it. Then boot the system and see if it makes any difference. Also to a disk check on this drive, because it may likely contain file system errors. If that doesn't work vallis option of purchasing recovery software is probably a good idea.
