    Hi, i accidently format one part of my HD to exfat, and now can't read it, the thing was, when i formatted it into exFAT, i was able to use it and move my data into my HD, but now, the HD doesn't even appear on my Mac, just wondering if there is a way i can copy all my data without trying to find a compatible windows machine, i do have windows 7 on my mac tho, if it helps.

    I take it this is an external drive?

    Does it work under Windows 7 on your Mac?

    Nope, it was able to detect it, but was not able to read it, windows 7 asked me to format before use...
