Hard drive stopped showing up in windows explorer so I removed it and put in in an external case to try in on another computer.
Drive doesn't showing up in "my computer" but i can see it in device manager.
Ran spin rite on the drive and it ran for about 6 hours and "repaired" some bad sectors, but I am still unable to access the drive.
I tried attaching the drive in Linux but nothing.
There is some data on there I would like to recover.
Anything else I can try?
have you tried right clicking the my computer icon, select manage, click storage, disk management and making sure the OS even sees the drive?
yep OS doesnt see the drive except in device manager and in the bios
weird because i can plug the drive up to my mac and it recognizes it as a drive but its unreadable because its NTFS
I have also tired the drive on SUSE, openSUSE, and Ubuntu all see the drive in hardware information but none of them mount the drive
Weird. I JUST had this start happening to me last night.
