Cannot get into disc drive RAW

#1 Post by myminpins » 18 Jan 2016, 18:57

I don't know why but TestDisk didn't work for me the first few times and then it did.

I'm good now. The files I really needed I mostly recovered but the drive kept shutting down so I didn't get them all but a lot of them.

It's a USB drive. Had to keep turning it off then on again to keep it copying.

Did you already go into your device manager and USB-Controller?
You can select your Generic USB HUB, right click on it, choose Properties and Energy-Management and you can disable that your PC switches off your USB device to save energy.
Also watch the energy-options of your PC.

My computer is always plugged in so it has no energy saving things on at all, including turning off USBs, etc. I found the drive is having a problem so replaced it.
