Secondary Drive Appears to be Unformatted...
| 2:36 pm on Oct 26, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Last night I defragmented my secondary hard drive and everything appeared to be fine. I use the drive to back up my server's log files each morning -- and today the process hung up.
Turns out the drive can no longer be accessed -- which leads me to be very concerned about getting the data off of there and backed up ASAP.
Are there any recommended utilities or tips that may help me to recover this data?

Can you see the drive in the BIOS? If it's still visible there you may be able to try some disk utilities.
You didn't mention your specific OS or tell us which process hung. It would be difficult to offer much advice without a bit more information.
