You could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
then run your antivirus program
hope this helps

My 310gb transend hard disk all foders became shortcut lnk files size shows 2kb,please guide me to recover data?


Hi there,your external hard disk may be infected by virus.Firstly,remove the virus with anti-virus software in your computer.Then you can recover your files from hard disk with third party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover files from hard disk with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard disk to look for lost data.
By the way,you can download a trial version and scan your hard disk for free to preview whether your files can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

My segate 80gb IDE harddisk Board power and header Problem. Please Help me How to recover my data in that hard disk.


There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Remove the bad sector from samsung sp0411n


Although A format could help it sounds more like you have some bad sectors on the harddrive.

Right click on the drive, select properties, then select the tools menu and initiate a disk check. it will give you an option screen before it proceeds, select the option to scan for a recover bad sectors/clusters. This will write off and mark the bad sectors so they will not be used again. If the problem comes back again soon then your palette media is failing and you should replace the drive.

Good luck and let us know how you make out,

Chris

My segate 300Gb HDD keeps asking to format it when i recently pluged it into a new computer to transfer data to and it said that the driver didnt install correctly. since then it keeps asking to forma


I'm assuming that this was functioning at one point. If you are using Windows, Right click on my computer and click "Manage" Then go to disk management? Does it see the drive at all. If so, has a letter been assigned? It is possible that the operating system will show the drive even if it can't read the data. Look to see what file system and how it sees the disk having been partitioned. It is possible that your partition table has been corrupted. This can possibly be fixed using a tool like disk doctor or fdisk.

If, on the other hand, the drive is also making funny noises, you may have a mechanical failure on the drive.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


After data is recovered, it should be moved to another drive to keep safe. The drive that was recovered has to be reformatted and checked for errors before storing more data.
