hi guys
facing a serious problem here..
i had kept some important data on my 80gb ide external drive and recently i restarted my pc and it was really slow while booting...then after reboot my 80gb ext. harddisk became inaccesible and gave me this error(file or directory corrupted or unreadable.......
can anyone suggest some way to overcome this and to save my data...
NOTE:i would like to add that i tried checking the drive for file system errors in the properties>tools of the drive...but the windows returns an error stating it can't access the drive......

RE: My 80gb external drive"

I remember the "my 80gb external drive" series has this problem and the fix is....

To help those help you better- and help those who may be "searching" for info to xyz problem /device.......
Please take a about 30 seconds to post:

A: ID string of this 80gb ide external drive you are talking about. (Mfg-and model number- should be on the casing of the device)

B: ID string of this 80gb ide external drive within the enclosure .(Device manager>(Select drive)Properties>Details tab>Property drop down box= "Hardware id string"
*****************************


Q: 80gb IDE external???? In enclosure? - or via some type of bare converter Q: External connected via usb, firewire?
Q: How OLD is drive?????

Q: Have you REMOVED drive from enclosure??? and connected it directly to PC?
Q: If your motherboard does not have IDE on board connectors - Do you have another drive enclosure /IDE to USB converter?
Q: Do you have friend with PC with onboard IDE -for direct connect?

Q: Using the info in "B" above- have you downloaded the hd testing apps from mfg who made the drive?
What is the error code?

Best scenario is enclosure / IDE to USB converter OR power supply has gone bad. - Worst case and more likely is drive has run out of reallocation sectors.
(Sector Relocation Error Code 0226)

I would
A: Try a different POWER SUPPLY for external/ swap drive into another enclosure if direct connect isn't possible.
B: Remove drive from enclosure- connect directly to PC.
C: Run hd mfg testing apps from a COLD BOOT (Off CD/USB drive to take OS out of equation.)
D: Try different ports
E: Obtain a copy of SPINRITE 6.0 - then try the various data recovery apps.
