Error message that says Drive is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover your files.

CRC errors are when the data is corrupted. You should run some tests on the hard drive.

yeah for sure this will delete all files and folders on the drive if you choose to perform the format may be the file system on your drive has got corrupted you can get the data recovered by some professional and then format it .but opt for this one only if you have some really valuable data on the drive as data recovering is quite a expensive.

Info Lost/Portable not recoginize


Assuming you've already tried using it on another PC or Mac (as appropriate) with any needed software installed, and that didn't work, your next DIY step is to remove it from the container.

If you can remove it (most drive makers do not publish the instructions to disassemble their equipment), you can hook the drive up inside most PC (not laptop) cases directly (if they have the required IDE or SATA connection), or take it to your local PC store for a quick test.

As a last resort, you can sent it to a "disk or drive recovery" company to get some or all of your data back if it hasn't been lost to a surface defect on the disk. This is usually a fairly expensive option.
