Hopefully you didn't lose any important documents. :/ Good luck babe!!!
ATTN: Zhen Ying- So far all seems ok lah. Got everything out. But... Too soon to tell. Not sure if any files were corrupted. Hopefully it's the permissions only. Not the files or the harddisk.
sounds like you might need one of these...http://www.groupon.my/deals/national-deal/Seagate/716367276?nlp=&CID=MY_CRM_1_0_0_268&a=715827970
Ever tried DiskWarrior?
ATTN: infinitium– Haha. I already bought one. Toshiba, 1TB, RM299. ATTN: SY– I managed to save my files already actually. But I think the HDD KO liao. Won't use it anymore. Even after formatting, it seems to be unstable. DiskWarrior must pay wan ah?
Disk warrior has saved a few "dead" disks of mine. Indeed, must "pay" also..haha
ATTN: SY– Eh, but the "saving" is that you save your files lah, right? The disk is still corrupted right? Not safe for continuous use anymore right?
That just depends on how bad it's damaged la. If it's just major file system corruption, then no issue. If your hdd sounds like it's got asthma..then maybe use to store random data only i guess.
ATTN: SY– I think mine KO di. It doesn't whirr but it makes sounds every once in awhile. =(
I've had my say. Now, you get yours. =)
