If it's a 250GB, the recovery DVD needs to format this drive (insofar as I know, Toshiba's recovery disks never uses quick format) - so .... yeah! It'll take a couple of hours just to prep the hard drive before the actual recovery imaging begins, and that's assuming that the hard drive formatted without errors.

If the hard drive has errors (bad sectors), it really could stretch out the total time. I've done a recovery on a hard drive that contained 100MB worth of bad sectors and it took an entire two days to put an image on it. Why'd I do it? I justed wanted to know how long it was gonna take...

You did not mention which operating system you are using. Almost every operating system has partition manager utility. you can use any other utility by downloading from net. just search google.

Sounds like the drive has croaked. You can get the data but expect to spend upwards of $1000 or more to a data recovery company.

I have a w.d. external HD all my files is gone, so how can i get it again? but if i check the propeties the used space is it there.. so how can get back again?


To recover your WD files, please follow the below steps:

First thing first - STOP using your WD drive immediately! If you continue using the disk drive, you significantly increase the risk that the files you want to recover will be lost forever due to overwritten. Every new file or action will take up more "free space" and reduce your chances of retrieving your deleted files from WD. So really, you need to act quickly.

The next step - get a good HDD data recovery software to retrieve the data as most as possible.

Western Digital 250 GB MyBook external HDD not responding


If you've tried removing the disk-drive from the casing, and attaching it as a "slave" drive in some desktop computer, and you still have the problem, then you have a _BIG_ problem. Search online for a professional (and not inexpensive!) "Data Recovery Service". They should be able to disassemble and repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to extract all your precious files, and copy the files to DVD-recordable media or to a brand-new disk-drive.

Western digital Scorpio 120 G


Actually there is no solution, the hard drive is bad.
What I ended doing was recording the partition in iso. ( I had a Factory Partition)
Got a new hard drive 160G scorpio unfortunately it does not come with installation disc.
Installed Vista, and with vista created a partition and then installed the contents of the factory partition.
