Data recovery software

My Time Machine backup went crazy today. I had to restart iMac. It would not recognize my LaCie backup. LaCie says I need data recovery software to get info off the device. I need a recommendation. Thanks.

... is my backup and storage. It is not recognized by my 2 Macs, so I have to get the data off of it with a recovery program. Thanks for the info.(*_*)

You might want to try Disk Warrior

it is not free but it has saved a whole slew of drives for me.

It rebuilds the directory of the drive which is one of the reasons why a drive will appear on the desktop or be recognized by Disk Utility.
Worth a try
