I think the problem may lie with gParted formatting as ntfs as once I got windows to do it, it seems ok. If the drive is really bad, WDDiag will (should) eventually time-out and give you a code, and some basic instructions. –Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 17 '11 at 23:51 should i make Is there a quick way to restore the file structure and to retrieve my data?   I'm particularly interested in 1 folder, which is over 160 gb. If the above two things are not possible do what I did.

If you can see the drive contents then use Recuva and restore. because I'm kinda sleepwalking. If you really need your data back, the quickest and most reliable way is to use ”Parted Magic”. https://audiosex.pro/threads/how-should-i-fix-my-wd-external-hard-disk-error.14992/ From what I've read the problem can be solved but I don't have enough knowledgement about HDs geometry to figure it out, so I hope somenoe can help me....

Since you are able to use your drive from another computer, you might try the following: do a quick format on the drive using NTFS as the filesystem; now start Easy This is the first time I have a problem like this, but when I was trying to install a game today I got a error message at an early time during AVI, MPEG, MP3, PDF, RAR, ZIP, EXE).

Please re-enable javascript to access full functionality. check my blog I don't know jack about $MFTs but just encouraging discussion of the problem. I'll have to try out these awesome suggestions. You need a more muscular AV program.

It's BIOS/CMOS who's in charge of power distribution. *no* Win8 is just the invisible/weightless magnetic field on one's HDD Unless it's UEFI/SecureBoot, then it's possible, as long as it's physically connected SirSillySausage, he said when he plugs in the drive the PC slow down and freezes, i had a similar problem with 2 of my hard drives, one i could repair, and Joe BuzzLS 2014-08-18 22:27:23 UTC #3 How do you boot an external hard drive from a CD? this content A case like this could easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The disk's properties are correctly shown in Device Manger. I tried your suggestion early but again, only a small number of files were found to be recovered, just like an Advanced Recovery without specifying to ignore MFT. No, create an account now.

However, there is no software that will fix a corrupted $MFT or fix corrupted file structures, as far as I know.
