Hard Disk Issues
Posted on 2009-04-08
I am using an Acer aspire m5640. I have a secondary 1 TB Seagate SATA HDD which I am using to backup all my data (I have a primary 320 HDD with Windows VIsta Home Premium on it). About 2 weeks ago my Vista refused to start because my anti virus deleted something (at least I thought so) and then after doing alot of reformatting n sending it back to the service center, my Vista is up again, but once i plugged back my Seagate HDD into the secondary SATA slot, the same problem returns and Vista refuses to boot up. So turns out all along its my secnodary HDD that's giving me issues. When I did a surface scan on it, the scan said that the drive "Is not ready" and proceeded to scan a huge amount of errors on every sector of the HDD. Is there any program or way to fix this issue or even recover my data? I'd like very much not to format this drive because it contains alot of my movies, music, pictures etc. Thanks for any advice given!
