Question about Computers & Internet
Program is called start help. exe> This is unwanted and I dont want to have to be bothered with the request for access window every time I start my PC. It must have piggy backed with another downloaded file.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: EISA configuration
I believe that he EISA configured partition is where your computer manufacturers 'Restore System' data is kept so that you can't normally access it and mess it up. You seem to have gone to a lot of trouble to do work around that.
I would be interested to know if you can still restore your system now using the data that you transferred to a different partition?

Hello there Mansoor.
First, I have to commend you on how clear and extremely well articulated your problem is presented. You give every detail necessary to grasp your current situation. Good job! I can also clearly see you're at least a fairly proficient user. I only wish I'd reviewed your question before now, so I could have replied sooner. That notwithstanding, here's my GEEK-steer ...
Good job testing the drive against other "known good" systems. Because (as you probably already know) based on that, it's a virtual certainty it's the drive itself that's the source of the problem (UNLESS you used the same USB cable in all tests ... rule that out by using a "known good" cable). Its trouble could be caused by any number things [e.g., deleted partition, virus related, "sector" (file/folder structure related) errors, etc.]. At this point you've utilized all the tools that Windows avails you to work this problem (e.g., you obviously can't perform a Windows "chkdsk" on it unless there's an assigned and known driver letter, "Disk Managment" was no help, etc.). We therefore need additional software tools in order to proceed further.
Per the manufacturer's webpage, "Acomdata does not have any Windows XP, Windows Vista or Mac OS drivers because all products use the built-in driver support already supplied by the associated Operating System". Therefore, they design all their devices to be supported by Windows' database of generic drivers. However, here's their offered driver package for "All Platforms". It's a long-shot, but it couldn't hurt to start by giving this driver a try (you can always "Roll back driver" from within "Device Manager" if necessary).
== CAPTURE AN IMAGE BACKUP ==
If, as you state, data recovery is of the utmost importance, then I would strongly advise your very first objective to be (if at all possible) creating an image of the problem drive, then backup that image onto another drive. I would do that FIRST to lock in it's current state as an insurance policy, BEFORE I ran any testing/diagnostics, or attempted any alternate means of data recovery. Keep that image intact throughout this process until resolution. There are several disk image "Backup Tools" (e.g., "DriveImageXML", "Acronis True Image", etc.) in "Hiren's Boot CD" you can use to accomplish this.
== BREAK OUT THE TOOLBOX ==
Refer here for complete list of its available tools. There are far too many to cover in any detail here. Particularly when the nature of your problem is yet known, as each may, or may not be THE one for the job. However, you can simply Google each to obtain background and usage instructions. Also, tools reside in either the DOS or mini-Windows boot portions of the CD, as some are DOS executable and some Windows. You may have to venture into both until you find the tool that works for you. I know there's a lot in that puppy, but that is intentional because it's a good thing ... affords wide range of choices/options.
== HOW-TO CREATE 'HIREN'S BOOT CD' ==
Next I would attempt recovering the data using any number of Hiren's "Recovery Tools" category of tools (e.g., "ProSoft Media Tools", "GetDataBack for NTFS", "TestDisk", "Ontrack Easy Recovery", etc.). Many of these include diagnostics/repair facilities you can use in the course of your recovery efforts.
== RECOVER/FIX THE DRIVE ==
Then once/if you've successfully recovered the drive's data, you can (if applicable) use any number of Hiren's (hard-drive related) "Testing Tools" and "Hard Disk Tools" categories of items in order to fully test/diagnose and hopefully recover the drive to working order.
Good luck, and please do post back to ...

Chances are the drop jarred loose something in the drive that on;y caused problems when the disks stopped spinning and started again. Here is a list of recovery tools that would do the job if there is something there to recover. http://www.snapfiles.com/Freeware/system/fwdatarecovery.html
you will know within a couple minutes whether there is anything recoverable.
If it is that important you can send the drive off to www.OntrackDataRecovery.com and they should be able to get the files.
