Hard Drive not responding
I've just had the number two internal hard drive fail on my computer.
Windows (7) bought up warnings about the likely failure of the hard drive, and after restarting my system, the hard drive appeared in Windows Explorer, however the volume fill level is not present, and when the drive is selected, Windows Explorer stops responidng.
I've tried removing the drive and connecting it to the PC via USB and an adaptor, and I get exactly the same scenario.
The hard drive spins as per usual, so it doesn't seem like a mechanical error. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might have caused this, and how I can fix it? Is there any chance it's due to corrupt data?
