when trying to open a drive on the external HDD I am getting message - "Data Error (cyclic redundancy check)". I tried running chkdsk but it ended with error - "file system is RAW". so I checked the disk management and there are multiple partitions:
As I don't need a data backup I tried deleting partitions from here and then formatting the disk but it dint help. I tried running the Minitool Partition Wizard and it shows the disk as "Bad disk":
Please help with steps to recover the disk.
