I have two Western Digital WD2500KS (250GB) in my computer. Drive 1 for Windows XP, Drive 2 for Files
Drive 2 says: "The file or directory is corrupt and unreadable" when trying to open on Windows.
I backed up about 50% of my data, but after rebooting, the drive became unreadable and I received the above message.
I've used GetDataBack and Easy Recovery Pro. The latter says there are no physical problems with the drive (i.e. hardware or bad sectors). I tried recovering data with them. They scan some sectors very quickly, but others are very slow and cause the hard disk to stall (full activity, even after closing the program). A couple of times the computer has frozen.
Any help would be much appreciated.
