My HDD started get the "must back up message" so I bought a new WD HDD and turned my deteriorated seagate HDD into a external HDD I was able to use it once to get a few files since I thought that it might be ok or some how fixed since its not internally integrated to my pc. But when I tried to use it again it shows two partitions the reserved partition when it was my main internal HDD and the "main" partition, now the problem is when ever I try to open the main partition of the external it always makes folder unresponsive and eventually says not responding and I have to remove the usb cable of turn off the power on my external to make respond again.
