Hi, 

 

Am able to see the Folders and File on Seagate EDD but not able to access - have tried the following three methods that John Litten has suggested in various posts in this forum.

 

1. TESTDISK

http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/

 

I did the WRITE and rebooted in Windows, still unable to access EDD

Says H:\ is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect

 

 

2. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/481048/external-drive-showing-raw-data-after-removal-without-ejecting/

SMART test says Device Disabled, unable to run it

 

3, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/480044/hard-drive-failure-recovery-partition-visible-main-inaccessible/

Mounted EDD (bad drive) and partitioned HDD (good drive), able to copy from EDD but unable to paste as HDD shows "Read Only" by default

 

The above tells me I am very nearly there, need your hand holding :-)

 

Thanks

Arvind

 

p.S  - my starting point was

External Disk Drive RAW

I googled this and found you :-)

 

Here are some of the test logs
