Clearly it's time to buy a new disk and bring this one to the recycling.
And remember: "You only lose what you don't backup". The concequence is that you should backup everything you don't want to lose. It doesn't matter if it it's on an internal or external harddisk, an SSD, a USB-stick, a SD-card or a burned CD/DVD, it's the same for all media.
Not backing up only is an option for things you can so easily recreate or redownload that doing that is easier, takes less time or costs less money then doing tnat backup. The choice is up to you.
I have a 1TB Seagate Expansion disk. It was working fine till last week. It still works fine. I can access all data in it.
But there has been a problem while copying files into or from the disk. It takes a long time and sometimes doesn't even copy.
I don't know what the problem is. I have tried the 'scan and fix' but it hasn't worked.
Just last month, all data had turned RAW and I had formatted the disk. I lost all data. I don't want to lose any more data.
Does chkdsk work? I don't want to use it as it takes long time and there is no option to cancel it. Is there an alternative to chkdsk?
Can someone help? Thank you
