Ran the Maxtor hard drive scan, found out my drive is failing. Any suggestions on data recovery?
I just reformatted and re-installed XP SP2, and my 2nd hard drive is unreadable for some reason.
When I look at disk management, it says it is unreadable. Does the fact that it is a dynamic disk affect anything?
It is a Maxtor 160 GB hardrive with 2 partions as the primary slave.
Before I reformatted and re-installed, Windows would get to the blue "Windows is starting up" screen and freeze. This only occured after I defragged my now lost drive. Are all of these events related? And is there any way to get my data back?
