HDD Failure

    Yo,

    So I recently noticed that I am no longer able to access my hard drive. When I try to open it I get the error: "This disk structure is corrupted and unreadable". After googling around for awhile, most of the methods I tried didn't work. I tried using chkdsk in CMD and reinstalling the drive. Any idea on how to fix it or is it completely dead?

    Also, if it turns out to be dead, any idea on how to recover the files? It's not life-saving files, but I'd be glad to have them back.

    I've had this happened to me when I was younger and my dad figured that he'd just buy a new HDD and swap the old one out. My porn files didn't get imported back to the new one, but it's whatever.

    Yeah, I'm guesing my hard drive has reached it's final day, but is it still possible to get my porn happy stuff back?

    I'm guessing that HDD failure means that it's completely dead and not readable by any machine, so if you're looking forward to getting those dank ass pussy pics and those sick ass blowjob videos, you're going to have to fix it.

    Depending on the damage that occurred, and how old the drive is, you can probably still recover the data. During my 1700 mile drive across the US with my PC I actually corrupted one of my 7 year old drives that caused my PC to BSOD every boot. Oddly enough, just reseating the RAM and reconnecting drives fixed the problem. So Sometimes it's as simple as "turning it off and on again". But if you've tried all of the suggested methods, you may not be getting back that data. If it was really just porn, I'd just call it quits now and invest in another drive. After that, just hit up a private torrent community to re-obtain your perfectly legal* data. And remember, WD for reliability, Seagate for savings.

    What is your opinion on Hitachi drives?

    Not much experience with them but I categorize with Seagates. The only 2 I have experience with are 1TB 2.5inch drives I use for my jailbroken PS3. 2 years and they seem to be holding up @ 95% full

    I generally prefer WD anyway, I just have a Hitachi external desktop 3.5" drive and I am not sure if I should sell it while it works or just wait until it dies since it's from 2012.

    I've said it before, i've had a couple WD drives die while i had this one during the same time, and it's still kicking. It's at least 5 years old, but i'm pretty sure it's a little older than that. My external is also a Seagate i've had for a couple years and it's fine. Perhaps i'm just lucky with Seagate and not so much WD, idunno.

    Literally cannot be more clear on what happened.
