WD MyPassPort 320 GB partially dead after an attempt to make it Win8 recovery drive.


Maybe you can try to format it to see if you can get the space back. But one thing important is that you may need to backup your files first. If not, you may lose them. Or you may try some file recovery tool after you format your drive. This may be help, I've try it, workable. http://www.uflysoft.com/data-recovery-mac/ Hope it can help and hope you can get back your 320G back.

Sir COM means "Component Object Model". These are basically DLL files which are used for system tasks and if they get corrupted then you get same problem. For solving this you need to repaid your windows using windows disk.

Error message: "COM Surrogate has stopped working."

COM objects are often defined in Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL files). The Program file for COM Surrogate is actually dllhost.exe that can load a DLL and make its objects available to other programs.

The COM Surrogate error message is often related to codecs and other COM objects that aren't fully compatible with Vista. These are installed by other programs. The most common culprits are DivX and Nero. The first thing you should do is upgrade to the latest versions of these to see if that fixes the problem. Another possible fix is to disable thumbnail previews in Explorer. To do that:
In Windows Explorer, click Organize, then select Folder and Search Options
Click the View tab
Check the box that says "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
Click OK
To help troubleshoot which codec(s) might be causing the problem, you can use a free tool called InstalledCodec. You can use it to disable individual codecs one at a time.
You can download it at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/installed_codec.html


Hope that helps

Solution to recover files after formatting


There is a solution to recover formatted, deleted data recovery through a software called "Ontrack Easy Recovery" from this you can recover in RAW format also. Make sure after deleting or formatting the drive don't install any softwares or write other data. This will overwrites the traces of your old data. So you can't get back data completly.

Hope this will be usefull...

Thanks & Regards
