I've got a ADATA Superior SH93 (500GB) for a while now. Formatted as NTFS. And within the first week two times the drive got corrupted (asks me to format it to be able to use it, although it was already formatted WITH files on).
Then it hasn't happened for a couple of months and it just happened again. What could be causing this? I'm using windows 7.
Also what can I use to scan the hard drive for existing files? since the drive havnt been used and impossible to use it without formatting it, all the bytes are still there but need to be pieced together.
What can I do to prevent this in the future? rather than throwing it against the wall and using memory stick with far less memory which seems to survive no matter what i do to it. Whilst the 'military grade' hdd fails when it hasn't even been moved.
