STECH 320GB Corrupt Boot file

My external hard drive just suddenly stopped working and when I tried to run a virus scan on it after scanning my C: drive it stopped with an error saying could not access corrupt boot file. Is there anyway to recover the lost file so I do not lose all my data?

My dell computer with windows 7 will not recognize my device - tried it on an apple and found 2 files but could not open - said corrupt and unreadable? how to I retrieve my photos and docuements?


run a virus scan on the device (from a good licensed antivirus company and a windows machine recommended) then later go to folder options and untick 'hide hidden items' and 'hide system extensions' options (basically untick all options related to hidden files and folders and say yes when prompted). your data is there do not format.

use asoftech data recovery program to scan your external hard drive and then recover lost files. you can find it from facebook
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/290956907592436?sk=info

This software scans all storage space on external hard drive and then join pieces together to recover files. So even virus affected your file table, and put virus to boot sector, the program can still be used to recover your files. Asoftech data recovery software will recover deleted files emptied from the Windows Recycle Bin, or lost due to the format or corruption of a hard drive, virus or Trojan infection, unexpected system shutdown or software failure.

WD external hardrive(320 GB). Every time i connect it to any computer , the computer stops responding. But the computer dictates that there is an external hddrive connected.


Does this happen if you connect it to a different computer?
On the other computer, virus-scan all the files on the drive.
It could be a computer-virus that is getting launched
when you connect it.

Is it your computer's virus-scanner that is trying to "scan" EVERY file, when the drive is connected?

Start the Windows Task Manager. Connect the drive,
and watch the "Performance" tab, to see what resources are being consumed.
