Forgot this is the message I get when I can't access a file. (The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error).
I had an external hard drive connected to my PC. While moving my desk around the PC tower fell over and the power was disconnected along with the hard drive. When I restarted the PC and reconnected the external drive almost every file in it were corrupted. I had many images and home videos of my kids. Some images open up but I can only see half the image, the other half is grayed-out. Some videos I can see a few seconds or minutes, but not the whole video. But most images, videos, and file folders wont even open. Is there any way I can restore these files?
