    all worked fine, until i restarted my laptop 20 minutes ago. when it restarted this popped up. it shows in disk utility but i cant mount it, when i click that nothing happens. if i click verify it tells me to repair and if i click repair it tells me it cant do it and i need to reformat.
    its the original 500gb apple hdd, 2 months old. anything i can do to avoid reformatting? or at least any way to recover data?

    Which optibay did you get?

    May be try to remove the HD from optibay and put into an external enclosure and see if it is working?
