about a week ago i had a HDD failure and my question is: Is there a way to access the data on the HDD... but i will start from beginning:
- Notebook from Packard Bell / i5 2450 / 8GB RAM / Nvidia GT 630M 2GB
- Win 10 Education N 64bit
- Toshiba HDD MK1059GSMP (look log for more information)
- Got a "Kernel Data Inpage Error" - Bluescreen => I forced shutdown after one hour of "Gaining information (75%)"
- After restart "Starting automatic repair" (always for around 3 min) => A window opend and closed directly (only seen the frame of the window for some ms) => Just a black screen for hours
- Tried booting from Windows Installation USB => Took hours to first window (this is not normal i though...) => aborted the loading after hours
- Googled about the error => Came to the conclusion, that it could be problems with HDD or RAM
- Let run MEMTEST86 => After some hours test completed without errors
- Loaded parted magic from live cd (HDD Log attached below -> SMART short test failed with read errors and the rest is also not looking good!)
- Now i tried mounting the HDD with read only option in parted magic (had fastboot activated on windows) => failed
- Tried CloneZilla partclone to external HDD => failed ... partclone log said: Log into windows and run chkdsk... nice....
- Tried to "dd" the HDD to external HDD from Ubuntu live CD => Failed always at around 1 GB with read error
- Tried accessing HDD with a working windows over SATA to USB adapter => Mounting old "C:" failed, i only can access "system-reserved" partition.
Seems like my HDD is crashed fully, so i ordered a new SSD and now I'm back online an my notebook. Restored most important data from a backup, but there is still some data on HDD with i hadn't backuped, because I was on a travel for some weeks.
So is there a option to access the data or is my HDD just electronic waste?
