Recovering a formatted external with Recuva

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Friend formatted his external accidentally.
left the drive untouched afterwards.

I came, ran Recuva with deep scan, some data is unrecoverable, however data classified green(excellent, very good, etc.) are okay.
Ran recover, recovered some files to another external

other files have given the error : The device is not ready
I've run recovery twice and its given me the error at the same place in files.

Internet mentions drives going to sleep,
I'm listening to music off the external being recovered to.
Explorer is open in the drive being recovered from.

Any Ideas?
