    Default Hard Drive is not going to format


    To begin of, I did read past threadsand attempted applying test disk but my alternatives were differentfrom the other guy's trouble.. I have a 2TB HP Simple Save Drive.. Itworks alright everyday. Occasionally affording me this trouble.Still, in the past I would only turn off the power and turn it rearwith for it to work. Now it does not solve the trouble.. Is thereanyway to salvage my information? Any assist will be appreciated!

    Recuva only appears to scan and display items that I no longer require, those I have removed earlier... Acquire Data Rear is however running... Is there no mode to save the hard drive by itself? As applying TestDisk or something because I have about 1TB of data with the drive... It is going to bring ages to restore..

    Personally I would recover what you can earlier possibly doing extra harm to the drive or your files.

    It shows my boot sector as OK.. I have went to device management and the unallocated space is just 1MB... Partition fashion: Master Start Record.. All appears to be general... but the hard drive is only unformatted...

    Download r-Studio run it in demo way and scan the drive for approx 1hr then stop the scan and watch what it has detected and report rear a screen shot.

    Yes but depended upon the stats the scan just ran for 6min which is not long plenty you are even acquiring CRC errors which tells me this is not going to be a simply DIY recovery the drive is having problems weak or bad head. Let it scan for a least an hour or maybe 2 a 1TB drive can bring 10 hours to scan its a LOT of data to scan via like you can watch the present estimate is 20hours with the far right hand slope.

    I re-began the scan and it scanned for an hour total. I will redo the complete thing and allow it scan for about 8 hours uneven and I will report rear with a new screen shot is that ok? Thanks for the assist by the mode. Actually appreciate it.

    What occurs if you click with the drive you have highlighted can you watch any of the information later its enumerated ? However watch tons of CRC errors in the logs not a good sign for a successful recovery and the main culprit for the failure.

    No attempt to right click you should watch an alternative to open files it will bring a small bit to enumerate the listing or double click the HP Simple save partition.

    Not clear on unclickable ? but more as compared to likely connected to the CRC errors and the drive not being capable to "read" the data exactly. Pro recovery may be your just alternative if the information is required.
