I have an old seagate 750gb with about 350gb of data on it. Its been lying a cupboard for well over a year and I decided to see what was on it and if I could recover the files. I find that there were so many files I needed on it and I though I had lost so I began to take the files off. Then all of a sudden about 2-3 hours later it just stopped.
I booted it up again a few days later and it ran for about 30 minutes then again it stopped.
Since then I have left it one week and I only got 5 minuted out of it. I have about 200gb left to take of it but it won't stay on long enough. What can I do? Is this a physical fault as, as far as I know its never been dropped or even hurt in any way.
