Hi all I need some help please.
I bought a Western Digital 1.5tb external Hdd about a week ago. And I put about 250-300gb of data on there. For the last couple of days it hasnt been connecting to any computer I connect it to. And it wasnt showing up anywhere ( my computer,device manager, disk mangement)
Ive manged to get it connected now and im trying everything to fix it from checking the disk and fixing the errors, to trying and recover the files but all the programs keep not responding unless i pull the usb cable out. but i dont want to pull it out in case it doesnt get recognized again. The drive is showing as Raw and sometimes get i/o device error
I was wandering if i create a partition on the drive to get make it bootable will the files come back or will they get deleted.
The programs Ive tried is easeus recovery, acronis disk director, tuneup disk doctor, pc inspector file recovery and now recuva.
Thanks for any help given and advice
