HDD Problems -( Very Important Work Inside) + 3-Months Rapidshare Acc Tags: Hard Drives Boot Storage Last response: April 29, 2010 11:44 AM in Storage Share Abhi_01 April 29, 2010 9:34:09 AM I'll give a 3-months Rapidshare Account to whoever helps me to solve this Problem. Hi , 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.
