Drive started clicking during FAT repair

#1 Postby atomicraven » 19 Mar 2012, 17:33

Hi there,

First off love the software. Great piece of programming!

I have an issue with an external 320g drive. It's a Samsung HD321KJ:

- The drive was dropped and data was not accessible. I used TestDisk to re-write the boot sector and the data became accessible.

- The drive worked for about 24 hours. Then I started getting either "the parameter is incorrect", or "no FAT table" error msgs while trying to access the drive.

- I Tried to repair the FAT table with TestDisk. At about 51 % the drive started clicking. I can no longer access or see the drive.

Any help would be Greatly appreciated!

Rob

Is your disk damaged?
Did your eventviewer (from your OS) got some issues about your disk?
Can you diagnose your disk using diagnostic tools from manufacturer.
Should be Seagate now.
Otherwise check the status of your Disk using CrystalDiskInfo portable;
