Disk Management is reporting Disk 1 Unknown Not Initialized
I have an old Maxtor hard drive that I am trying recover data from it. It was a Maxtor Personal Storage 3100 external hard drive, where the power supply died so I extracted the hard drive from the case and now using an IDE to USB adapter to try and copy the files.
In Windows 7, it is showing up as Disk 1 Unknown and Not Initialized. Does this mean that my hard drive is corrupt? Is there anyway I can recover data off this drive?
