    I don't know why, and I don't dare to use it any more.
    I keep pictures and fiels on my a USB external hard drive Toshiba 1.8", today it suddenly became "not formatted" RAW hard disk.

    I can not open the disk and use the files.

    What should I do?

    free raw recovery is difficult to decide indeed, I have no peace in mind to use freeware, but before purchasement I use trialpay to free trial easeus data recovery wizard, indeed it find out my files,but I don't know how to use it to recover them.
    I'm a little ashamed to ask easeus support for help, any one who can provide help wil be appreciated.

    Here's another one you can try:

    TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses, or human error (such as accidentally deleting a partition table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

    TestDisk can:

    * Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
    * Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
    * Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
    * Fix FAT tables
    * Rebuild NTFS boot sector
    * Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
    * Fix MFT using MFT mirror
    * Locate ext2/ext3 Backup SuperBlock
    * Undelete files from FAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
    * Copy files from deleted FAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3 partitions.

    TestDisk has features for both novices and experts. For those who know little or nothing about data recovery techniques, TestDisk can be used to collect detailed information about a non-booting drive which can then be sent to a tech for further analysis. Those more familiar with such procedures should find TestDisk a handy tool in performing onsite recovery.
