So I've had an issue that was discussed here:
Windows wasn't able to detect my secondary HD, it appear it BIOS but windows didn't recognize it. I ran a SMART test on the drive and it had an error msg (see picture).
I was able to run Ubuntu and tried to back up my drive that way.
I wasn't able to access the drive (See Images). So i restarted the computer and CHKDSK prompt for a Check up on one of my drives for consistency. It ran a 10 min check up and loaded up windows normally.
Now i can see the drive in "My Computer" but it says: E:\ Is Not Accessible. Access Is Denied. with NTFS in grey just below drive.
I try runing CHKDSK on the drive and it says: The Disk check could not be performed because Windows Can't access the Disk.
How can I fix this or am i Screwed out of luck? Did the hard drive just failed and i cannot no longer access it?
Is there ANYTHING that i could try to get access to the drive and back up my data?
