Hey, im in need of help lol. Im having some problems with my 250GB Maxtor ontouch firewire/USB HD.

Windows says that i need to format my HD but it worked fine 8 hours ago. I turned my PC of, went to bed for 8 hours and then the **** wont work anymore.

Its in NTFS format. Do I need to use some sort of get data back program that takes ages or is there a quick fix?
