There are 2 solutions for your problem, but both of them request advanced knowledge in hard drives arhitecture and computer operating. First solution works under windows and is called Victoria 4.3 for windows. It's a tools for diagnostic and repair at low level for hdd and you can find it free on the internet, for these method you can use your hdd conected to usb, second it'a also free and it's called MHDD and you can find it at, for these method you must remove hdd from the enclosure and connnect it directly to your computer motherboard and boot from the cd created with MHDD, but be very carefull, you can destroy your hdd permanently if you don't now what to do, and you can lose all your data, so if you have an IT specialist ask him to do it.

If you have a hard drive that is corrupt of failing sometimes running check disk will recover some of the files or repair the problem, follow these steps

start type cmd in the search bar or run prompt type the drive letter follow by a colon and hit enter type cd backslash and hit enter type chkdsk space front slash r

the backslash space are actions or symbols that need to be typed in. i get an invalid character error when i try to include them here.
this will fix any errors and try to recover any files from bad sectors also if it is a mechanical failure with the hard drive sometimes putting it in the freezer for several hours will allow you to access the information because the cold shrinks the metal. its a long shot but has worked for me before

Where can I get a start up disk for my asus laptop, when I try to boot up I get: The boot selection failed because a required device is not accesible

The hard disk may need reseating or it may be faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

Cannot delete files from transcend storejet 2.5 160GB

Is there a physical lock on the device that needs to be switched?

Here are a few things to consider:
  • Only have one Explorer window open.
  • Have no other programs running that might be accessing the files.
  • Right-click the file, click Properties, and see if the write protection is on.
