I have a Seagate External 3.5" HDD. The computer didn't recognize it a few days back. So I disassembled the enclosure & taken the 3.5" Harddisk separately & connected to the Motherboard directly using SATA cable. It worked well for some days.
Now again the Harddisk is not detecting at all. It shows up in BIOS while booting, but after entering Windows OS, it disappears. It doesn't show up on the Disk Management also and the Device Manager.
How to retrieve my data from the HD ? Please advice. All my data lies on the at HD. Please help

Unplug it from the sata lead, re-boot the PC with one drive only, then shutdown and re-connect it, it may well get found again, it's not this drive that's causing it anyway, it's either a bios setting or the O/S.
