[QUOTE="MonsieurX"]Not sure of the question... reformat = loosing everything Don't see what else you can expect of that :|TheProdigy619
I recently bought a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM. When i installed the new components and tried to boot up windows wasn't working. I had to reformat my HDD in order for things to work properly.
Before i reformatted my HDD I grabbed my brothers external HDD and backed up all of my files. When I went over to his house he started telling me that he reformatted the external HDD so that it could pair with his PS3 and that it might not let me transfer files over 1GB.
Everything transfered over to the external HDD from my HDD just fine. in the process I read that my back up would be saved on disk G:
After the back up, I reformatted my HDD and installed all the necessary drivers, then connected the external HDD with my back up files on board. Once connected, I explored its contents only to find disk F: which was labeled PS3. The only evidence that I can find that my files actually made the transfer is the change in available space. There is exactly 48GB (I know, I had almost nothing on here) less space than there was before i attempted the back up. I have no idea where disk G: is :S
My question is; where are my files and how can I get them onto my HDD?
When i connect the external HDD i get this message
