I have a couple of HDD in my PC, one of them is a 3TB secondary drive "T" that I keep all my media in.
today, I notice that drive "T" has disappeared, it wasn't showing either in (my computer) or (disk manager).
I rebooted my PC and a message showed up "sata secondary hard disk drive 1 failure", there were a couple of option, either to continue or to diagnose the drive, I selected "diagnose", it went on for about "5 minutes" then said there's an error in the drive. It gave me 2 options, to continue scanning or boot windows, I booted.
After booting it I immediately went to "my computer" and the drive "T" was there, I can open it, but it is extremely slow, and the file (media) would hang up when I open them.
I rebooted the PC again, the message came up again "sata secondary hard disk drive 1 failure", I scanned again, this time it didn't find anything wrong, and it asked me again if I want to continue scanning, and I did, which went on for almost 30 min, and didn't find anything wrong.
Now the drive is there and I can see my stuff in it, but when I play them, it is barely working and cant seek forward/backward because when I do the software will hang up.
What can I do to save my HDD? if I can't, then what can I do to save my data?
The HDD is a Seagate 3TB, and I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.
**I'm trying to transfer my data to another HDD, but its moving at 47KB/s. I have 1TB of data!!!
- I can't move my data, it keep stopping at 1% *
*Ok, I managed to move 95% of my files via "Roadkil's Unstopable Coppier", I formatted the drive. and it seems to be working fine, but when I restart my PC it still show the same error. so how do I make sure the drive is broken ? *
