Problem with external hard disk of two partitions Tags: Hard Drives Partition Storage Last response: January 13, 2012 3:21 PM in Storage Share Joaoie January 13, 2012 3:18:14 PM Hello, my name is Joao. I have external hard disk that has two partitions but one partition cannot read, I have very important stuff in it. How can I restore my stuff?

You can try to do a scandisk on the drive, select find and try to fix bad areas. Will take a while, do not interrupt it. If that fails, try a file recovery software like Recuva (there is a free version of it). Can't find your answer ? Ask !
