I have a USB 2.5" Transcend 250GB, running on Windows 7, After message "your drive needs to be Formated" i rewrote the boot sector with TestDisk 6.12, boot sector was now fine but some folders were still corrupted, i tried retrieving data, but testdisk was unable to access the contents of those folders. Then i used HDD Regenerator to repair bad sectors... in the process (at about 27%) an error poped up.. after that, the hdd doesn't detect anywhere in windows or with any apps.. What to do? plz help
More aboutdetected anywhere
Your hard drive sounds stuffed.
Bad sectors are like cancer for a HDD, more than likley they will spread (or more will appear) until the drive us unusable (what you have now)
The thing is i only want 1 folder from the drive, is there any alternative for accessing the drive?
