Cannot access parts of harddrive?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I have a 1TB WD Black as my storage drive/ backup drive. The past few days it has been acting up - windows suggests that I chkdsk and I can't access some folders. I ran defraggler and it repaired most of the problems temporarily. The same issues came back a few hours later. Aside from the accessibility issue for some folders, the drive is also very, very slow. It takes about a minute to load the thumbnails of a folder containing 10 images.

Are there any tools I can use to fix this?



The error I get is:

Location is not available:

E:\ _______ is not accessible.

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

Thanks in advance

You said you have Defraggler - can you post a screenshot of the Health tab?

Your drive could be on its way out. You'll probably have to replace it ASAP.

HD Tune finally finished! Does it repair the errors on discovery? Or just show how screwed I am?

Hot damn, I haven't seen that much percentual sector damage to any hard drive in a long time..
Yeah, you should get your data off that drive as soon as you can, try to repair sectors and if you come across anything it won't do, there's virtually no chance you'll get it off of there intact. Time for a new drive!

You might be able to repair some of the damage, but with that much... good luck!

If you open a command prompt, type in:
Code:
chkdsk /r C:
(Or whatever drive letter.)

It may require a reboot to do the check. It'll take forever.

Update on my situation:

So I managed to grab all my important data off of the drive. I then ran checkdisk and then shut my computer off. I opened up my case and wiggled the sata cable and then rebooted.

Now the drive is working fine and HDTune is showing 100% good blocks..

Should I still try to RMA this drive? Or could it just have been a loose cable the whole time?


Lol nope, this drive is a goner.
