I need help to either repair a HDD or recover data from it.
It shows up in disk management as uninitialized. When I try to initialize, I get the Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check).
Is there a way to fix the error and initialize the disk? OR Is there a way to recover the data from the HDD as is?
- The drive does not show in diskpart util.
- I cant use chdsk because the HDD doesn’t have a drive letter.
- So far, I have used Easeus Data Recovery. It scanned for 5 hours, wasn’t find anything. I got a little impatient and stopped it. Then I started a new scan with Disk Drill. Was still scanning at time of the post. Going to leave that overnight to see if I make some headway.
Edit: The disk drill scan stopped after about 8 hours with an error that the drive couldn’t be detected.
