"Hello! I do have saved many documents on my D drive of my Samsung laptop and this morning, while trying to transfer several file folders from this D drive to another Seagate external hard drive, one of these partitions on this Seagate drive strangely froze during the data transmission and all of them disappeared finally. I really did not know why. But, this Seagate external hard drive had held many of my school videos, audios, PPT and Excel documents that needed in the next Monday. They all were also gone with these lost hard drive partitions. How do I do now to recover files from lost partitions? Any solution can be very welcome here! Thank you very much!"
