    If it has lost everything, backup what you can to your pc, then you need to recover what you can from the hard drive.

    If it is Fat32 or NTFS then use google " freeware file recovery" they are out there, some will let you see the files for free and charge to recover, but there are genuine free ones out there.

    If it is WBFS then you will need to format it to Fat32 to recover (use swissknife if you are on a pc - or use a MAC, only a quick format!!) This only changes the header of the drive but leaves the information, then the recovery software may be able to see it, no guarentees
