    Situation: Grabbed roomates WD external drive (formated for Windows) instead of mine (we have the same one) and started using time machine--it says "needs to reformat drive" I say ok, it starts, he goes, dude thats not your hard drive.

    Plugs it into his comp, doesn't recognize, already started formatting for Mac.


    Try Disk Warrior... nothing... Now trying to figure out next steps?

    Help is greatly appreciated.
