HDD Problems -( Very Important Work Inside) + 3-Months Rapidshare Acc
Apr 29, 2010, 9:34 AM
I'll give a 3-months Rapidshare Account to whoever helps me to solve this Problem.
I am having lots of problems with my Work HDD and i really need some files on it.
The pc was working fine when it had to reboot after installing updates...Then i got Hdd boot error...
I knew that the hard-disk was getting corrupt so i decided to back-up.
I used Hiren boot cd 10.1
Tried Hd regenerator 1.71 ..showed many bad sectors but was unable to repair all.
I tried to clone the drive and ignoring all bad sectors but it kind of froze at 98%.
When i rebooted ,the Hdd started making noises ( tac-tac-tac ) then no more noise and the Pc would not detect the Hdd again.
I opened the Hdd carefully and i think there is a problem with the mechanism inside and can't figure out how to fix it.
If i can get the Hdd to work for only 30min it would be great.
Its an old HDD - Quantum Fireball 20.4gb

I'm not the expert here, but after the ticking and you opening her up, I think it's a lost cause honestly

Try to put the hdd as a slave in other computer and maybe you can save some files. After that i advise you to wipe it clean.
