Ever have one of those days/weeks/ years (lifetimes)?
I had 1 TB of movies and music I had downloaded and it was scattered over several drives. So, I bought a new 1.5 TB drive and copied everything there in preparation to archive most of it to DVD.
Wiped and reused the old drives. Two bloody days later the new drive destroys itself. FRACK!
That is a big chunk of my life gone.
The drive thrashes briefly on boot. It shows in device mgr.
> Norton states the file table is corrupt.
> GParted states the drive cannot be access because it was not properly unmounted.
> chkdsk will not recognize the drive.
> Ubuntu linux will not recognize the drive.
> No commercial tools (Pareto, NTFS Recover, Recover data for NTFS, Diskinternals) recognize the drive.
Any constructive advice on how I might recover the music is desperatley needed.
