Hi guys, I'm really out of ideas and that's why I'm here. My hitachi 500gb hard drive is dying. it has a partition and it seems to have some problems I can't figure out. Firstly, I tried to transfer the files to my external hard disk because like 2 months ago, I tried to copy 100+GB of files from my internal to external hard disk. 3/4 through it, the speed suddenly became extremely slow. However, it did finish.
After that, I restarted my comp a few days later and my windows took like 1hr+ to startup and it lags like hell. I tried some stuff and on and offs my comp will be fine.
However, the main problem now is I can't transfer file from my partition. I tried to backup but to no avail too. Yesterday, the files were transfering like 250kbps. I tried some methods on how to speed up file transfer. But ended up, 25 BYTES per sec?! And I tried to transfer a mp3 file for 7 hrs and not completed.
Now, I hope someone can give me advice how i can diagnose the real problem and how to transfer or backup my files if possible.
