My WD 1 TB HDD died like a week ago. I am using my old HDD as backup.
Info about my problem:
WD HDD is plugged in into an external hub device or whatebs its called
Windows (xp 32bit) Disk Management says this HDD is Dynamic and Offline
If I rightclick and try to reactivate it, Disk Management will stop responding, 2 out of 3 partitions will appear in MyComputer but when I try to open them it stops responding, have to restart PC
I downloaded TestDisk after reading about it, checked some guides on how to use it. But I am damn clueless still.
I have 3 partitions on this WD HDD, 2 of them are totally fine, but C: (windows 7 boot partition) is dead.
When I use Deeper Search it says:
check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector
invalod FAT boot sector
The rest of Deeper Search is still going as I write, but it should go down fine.
My question is, how do I recover everything so I can continue using this HDD?
If I cant, how do I save data from it?
PLEASE, DO NOT link any guides, they are not going to help.
Thanks in advance.
