My second hard drive which I use mainly for photos andd music became extremely slow last week. After a couple hours of trying to transfer pictures to the drive the computer froze. I couldn't reboot until I shut the drive off in the bios. Any hope for saving the files?

go to the hard drive manufacture's website and download their tools and test it.

I did but only the primary HD is showing up. The other one is off and I can't turn it back on.
