i had all of my stuff on my external hard drive because it wouldnt all fit on my local disk along with my family's files. so i had tons and tons of pictures from vacations, hunting trips, and other various memorable moments. i had about 2000+ songs, 30 movies, 100 documents for school, all of my visual basic work (looks like we wont have a text/email spammer v3... ) and much more stuff. then i get on one day and i keep getting these little popups: i got a few of those, mainly for my aim logs since they were trying to be accessed every 10 seconds. then i did the chkdsk thing and rebooted cause it said it had to be done while windows was starting since it was always in use. now when i double click on the drive i get this: If someone can get this running again im sure i can get like 10 bucks to you. but i dont know for sure, so dont hold that against me if i cant. And, its a simpletech 320gb. Please help! thanks so much for at least reading! ~mizwax  also, i have like 10 adobe program installers and the cracks and keygens for each one. and a few different hacker type crap on there, so i dont think its the best idea to take it to bestbuy for them to try to restore it. and all the movies on it are pirated. lol. or will they care?
