My external hard drive has been giving me cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors for about a month, and starting yesterday, it isn't recognized by Windows at all, and the Western Digital Diagnostic program identified it yesterday as having bad sectors. Today it isn't even being recognized by that program. I looked around on Google and it looked like "SpinRite" had great results in repairing hard drives, so I gave that a try. The problem with that, is that it locks up at around 2 minutes for every test I try to have it perform. Anyone know of any other ways to fix my hard drive, or get SpinRite working? Thanks alot in advance!!!
