I have a samsung 500G external hard drive partition into 4 parts, some times when I try to open folder in side it pops out something like can't be open, I run chkdsk in win7, and it turns out to be readable again.
Last weekend there's one folder I can't even use chkdsk to scan though, luckily the folder is not so inportant, so I backup all other files in that partition and try to format that one, and it can't be format with a fast one, so I try the low format, when it finished the whole partition can't be read, said it is not formated then I used fast format to format again try to solve this, tragedy happened, all the partition turned into raw, can't be deal with any way I know, I replug it again, the speed of entering My Computer becames very low, and seems there's something wrong with scanning the external hard drive. But one partition came to be readable but with a lot of crrupt files when I try to backup it, the other there can be even be read by win7.
I search on internet found out this web site
by James. He is pretty good described all the detail when I try his way with the deep searcher at first it when pretty smooth, but it turn out to be very slow soon, it move little over the whole night stay in 7%
then I tried his way with mount the hard drive partition, it can be mounted but no files inside
I really don't know what to do now, I have a lot of important file inside, and family pictures, it's hard to just give it away.
Is there anyone who can help me with this problem.
Thank you very much
