I just recently bought a HITACHI Deskstar HD32000 2TB 7200RPM SATA hard drive. It ran happily on a Rosewill RX-DU101 USB Docking Station for 2 days, and after a reboot last night, started acting like a recently beheaded fish (it spins, led lights flashing and all).
So when I try to plug it in directly on board, the computer won't even boot (I've only tried it on SATA 0, will try the other slots later). And of course when I try to work it using the docking station, the hard drive is seen as unformatted (I don't even know if it'll actually format, partition magic gave me a I/O error).
And here's the thing, I already have 400GB of data on it. Some very important files are backed up, others are not so lucky.
It'll be good to get opinions about how much I can hope for recovering datas, before I attempt to reformat/send for replacement.
Thanks in advance.
