    Pink slider.
    go to open up my external, it opens but shows no files (had 400gb of shit on it)

    went into the properties and it shows 0b as a capacity


    can anyone recommend a good data recovery program that i can run to see if i can salvage my shit?

    Try Recuva from Piriform. They created CCleaner & Defraggler. Recuva has worked wonders for me in the past. Also try the Unstoppable Copier. It works pretty good too, and both are free.

    Go to http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ and download a version of Linux that you can boot from a USB stick. Better yet, check out their MultiBoot USB program. It will allow you to add multiple linux OS's & diagnostic tools to a single USB stick. The best part is that its all free.

    Also try the Ultimate Boot CD (http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/) & Hiren's Boot CD (http://www.hirensbootcd.net/). Both are free and have several utilities for hard drive testing/recovery.
