Raw external hard disk error

It is not an expected thing to meet a raw external hard disk. We can not open the external hard disk, we can not access data saved on the external hard disk previously, and we can not save any new data on the external hard disk after it turning to raw.
We can format the raw external hard disk to use it, such as save new information on it. But the formatting action can not let us view those original files saved on the external hard disk, as they are erased after the formatting. Then could those lost files be retrieved? Actually, we can get them back from the external hard disk which is not formatted with data recovery software.

how to solve the external hard disk raw problem

Step1. download and install the data recovery software on the computer.

Step2. connect the raw external hard disk to the exact computer.

Step3. run the data restoration tool on the computer and choose the recovery model and aim disk to scan.

Step4. wait some minutes and preview the contents in the list after the scan and then pick up the needed to recover.

Step5. select one of the computer hard disks as the location to store files to be retrieved.

step6. format the raw external hard disk and then convert the raw drive to NTFS FAT32 or any other normal file system.
