The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" so im pretty sure its a failing hdd but i still know the information is still on there so i would like to get it off before i throw it away. So i go recuva and it worked extremly well it found over 20000 files it even found files from before i reformated it the first time but i did not save any of the files because i wanted them in folders and i did not feel like organizing them i was going to do that as a last resort. So i know the files are on there i just need to fix it somehow and with the expert advice from bleepingcomputer i believe i can. So what do yall thank (bleepingcomputer posters) Any tips or tricks? Just use recuva or some other program better to get the files off and just throw it away or what? If you have any question or need me to run any test or programs or anything etc. etc. just ask i will take any help. Ok well thanks a ton hopefully from my mistakes others will learn haha ok well talk to you later Thanks!
