Well, as I'm typing this one of my hard disks is going down.
RAPIDLY. The data is disapearing it seems from windows explorer.
I have backups of some this data and its non-critical that I save it all, but I'd like to save as much of it as I can.
What should I do now?
Folders are just.. disappearing from Windows explorer. I'm able to copy files, but its moving really slowly. my copy operations are going really slowly.
Should I turn off the machine and disconnect the disk? should I keep doing what i'm doing trying to rescue the most important files before their folders disappear too?
Should I shut down and make sure the disk cools off then run chkdsk?
What is happening here and why are my folders going away?
