Hello Group,

I had a Seagate 1TB Internal HDD bought around 3 years, it was working fine though but suddenly from a months, it was unresponsive for a while as i was hearing some sound from it, but the HDD was working fine. Now from a week, even it connected, its stop responding when i tried opening the drive from My computer. I surfed all the net and non of the solutions worked for me. Please help to get out of this problem. I have more than 15Gb of Personal stuff, ~50Gb of Project Files, more than 200Gb of Softwares and ~150Gb of Project related files. I want this really back, Please help. Thanks in advance.

What were the solutions that you have tried so far?

I would run the SeaTools for DOS on the drive, after reading the Guide.  Just the diagnostic (long), do not attempt to repair anything.
