Thanks for your reply. It doesn't look good. I am thinking that the hard drive may be bad. I ran the diagnostic tests and came up with the following error codes, all beginning with 0F00: 0428,1228,0D28,0E28,1A28,137B,0628,1328,0244
Failed tests are as follows: device quick check, SMART long self test, SMART short self test, read test, SMART test, start unit(idle)command, stop unit(standby)command, verify test, confidence test
If the hard drive does need to be replaced, how would I go about extracting files from it before discarding?
