I have recently bought a new laptop with windows 8.
The laptop had a Smart USB BAckup program that I was going to use before I started configuring the PC.
I plugged in a USB3 Hard Disk and the PC had problems recognising it saying it had problems.
So I switched to USB2 Hard Disk, ran the Backup but the system appears to have cleared the Hard Drive!!!
When I plugged the USB hard disk back into my Windows 7 machine, it said I need to format the Disk!
This so called backup only took a few seconds so I am hoping I can recover my files.
The laptop is a Gigabyte P27.
1, Firstly how would I go about recovering my files form my USB hard Disk.
2. Why does my new machine have problems with the USB3 Hard Disk
