I have Windows 7 installed to my SSD and miscellaneous downloads and files stored on my internal HDD. My hard drive suddenly started loading slowly earlier this week - right clicking on the drive or trying to copy files usually results in explorer crashing. I can navigate the folders without too much trouble, but the subfolders still load slowly.
There's probably a chkdsk log buried somewhere in there, but in the meantime, I was going to transfer over what I could before seeing whether this problem was fixable. The drive is around 5 years old.
Are there any programs that can copy data from a semi-readable drive like this one? I can't tell if it's actually dying or not, but Windows at least recognizes it, so I'm hoping there's some way to transfer the data without crashing explorer.
