Hard Drive Issues - External Drive

  RobCharles1981 21:45 14 Oct 2015

I need advice here.

One of my Internal Hard Drives was playing up and running real slow I think it was the same issue in the I've placed into my thread Here:

click here formatted this drive as I knew I had backed up the image of this drive using EausTodoBackup Free Edition the day before and it told that the image backed up successfuly onto my external drive.

I had then brought another hard drive to replace the current one but that was faulty so had to rma it back to ebuyer for a replacement.

So I the ran a recovery program EasuUS Data Recovery to recover my files which saw all my files and I recoverd them over to the external drive. Took a while, but when It was done I needed to look through what it found. Then the Drive wasn't recognised!!!

When I went into event viewer click here that's what's telling me, and I've tried a chkdsk on it to repair the "Bad Sector" and it's on going and I gave up so unless there is another way of going about this?

At the moment I've ran another recovery on the internal drive and I'm currently saving the recovered files on another external drive. Again this taking a bit of time.

So my question is this, is my external drive the one showing this error on its way out? I've had this drive for 3 Years it was replaced by Novatech.

And would there be any ways to try and get to the data on that drive?

I am currently thinking on running HDD Regenerator from Hirens Boot CD to see if that would fix it, or I could format the drive and try and run a recovery program on this drive.

I've also ordered a spare Hard Drive to use this to recover the data more efficently.

Any input welcomed. Thanks Rob

Rob, you will need to wait until someone who has an answer drops by.
