Failing Hard Drive...
Posted on 2006-07-05
I have a pc with a drive that is starting to fail. It will boot but runs very slowly. I've tried running it as a slave and while I can access it to view the files, when I try to copy some of the files it just hangs.
I have tried running Ontrack Easy Recovery and GetDataBack but using either results in a critical error and a spontaneous reboot. I have also used Chkdsk which finds new errors each time but doesn't improve things...
The drive itself, while not making grinding sounds doesn't always sound quite right.
Can anybody advise on anything else to try and recover data before it fails completely?
