Thread: Harddisk failure

  1. #1

    Default Harddisk failure

    i think theres some bad sector .. i cant access my D: drive which is a partition from the master harddisk
    And this D: is where all my pics are ..

    I am now access the net from the laptop, the PC is now doing a scan before entering windows. Alot of files are unreadable and is taking a long time to scan.

    So how do i save it ?

    The partition no longer exists or?

    If the partition is just lost, format it then recover with software.

    Partition still there but when you click on the drive does it say unrecognisable partition?

    Make sure your scandisk didn't set to auto-repair errors. You might over write your images FAT.

    Aircon can help prolong the lifespan of many computer components, especially in our hot and humid climate. However, when **** happens, it happens!

    actually my vetilation is quite good inside my tower
    CD rom and 1 harddisk is place on the top part of the tower (space out)
    another harddisk is lower part of tower

    I actually skip the scanning and manage to access to windows.
    but when click to D: drive it says

    "D: is not accessible, error perform inpage operation"

    So what should I do next ?
    reformat master harddisk and close the partition and use system recovery

    my harddisk is still under warranty. wonder seagate can help me fix them ?

    they might repair it for you btu they wont be responsible for the data loss and time lost
    just burn a cd of a bootable linux and boot from cdrom and copy the files to one of your working drives.
    really easy trust me.. i have dealt with enough of these

    Symptoms look like a physical failure. You may want to get hold of a copy of SMART status-reading software (I suggest looking through the Seagate website) to find out the condition of the drive - at least there's an inkling of whether the fault's physical or logical (software).

    Sometimes it's just overheated. I've heard people (and my ex-boss) fixing their hard drive problems by packing it in the freezer for an hour or two and then quickly booting it up, then copying the stuff off before it dies (Linux is a good choice, but learn all the necessary mounting commands and stuff before attempting!) I've never done this before, so try it at your own risk.
