Okay so im kind of freaking out right now. Last night I had to format a old laptop hard drive so I can try get it to work with a mac. I unplugged one of the sata power cables and sata cable from one hard drive and plugged it into the laptop hardrive. I couldn't get it to work in the end and now when i plug in the other one it has nothing on it ? It just says 'Local Disk (E:) . This is a 1 tb hard drive and had all my videos saved on it.

Can someone please help?? When i try to open it it says to format it but im not doing anything unless i get a answer

Right so it took forever but i used Recuva and I think all of my files are back however none of them are in a folder. I have a few games on it and it looks like a complete mess and cannot find anything. Any fixes?

Use ease us recovery tool which help you to recover whole partition
 
@RhinoTV, if the file system damage is limited to your partition table or boot sector, then a repair should take (or would have taken) only a few clicks with DMDE.

Can you show us DMDE's Partition window?

I think I’ve formatted it too many times now that the folder structure is gone. Every time I tried to get it back it would come back but just dump the files everywhere. I honestly just gave up and accepted that I lost it as I wasn’t spending any money on it. Just wish i knew how I did it ...
