Its one of this, the 1tb version. So out of nowhere it doesn't load. When I try to open it, any computer freezes. I cant access the storage device manager it takes forever to open. What happened? how can I rescue the information thats inside? Any idea? I've tried two computers so far. Last thing it did was store my computer system restore image in it, it was like 12 hours of continues file copying, but it was just 50gb in the end. Did that killed it?? also its my brother's... so we got it for him in 2010 in dec. And until now it hasnt been formated nor it hasn't gone through maintenance... Whatever happens next I CANT LOSE THE INFO. suggestions?

update, when I boot when the drive is connected it stops everything from loading, nothing loads! wtf. (this is an external drive) I plug it off and everything starts instantly. also it behaves really weird. It prevents storage manager from loading, I did a dirty trick and loaded the manager and then connected it, but I get the weirdest response please take a look. Disk 0 is my boot drive and Disk 2 is the external drive.

WTF is going on?!!?
