Default Re: HHD failure or W7MC flaking out then recovers

So you have only 1 faulty drive. That should discard a software issue. You should try using different ports on your motherboard, and different SATA cables. Maybe it's just that. Otherwise, try the software tools and ultimately, if you can, try it in a different computer.

In the spirit of not losing data, you should do some research on RAID configurations. Some configurations are designed for redundancy, so files are copied and spread among drives. If one fails, the files will still be available to you from other drives, usually useful in situations where instant availability of data is crucial, but you could exploit that too, if you think that's the way to go.
