I have a hard-drive in my PC that I can no longer access. It is not my primary drive (it was, however, the hard-drive from my old computer). It is/was partitioned so that XP and other "necessary" programs were on what is now labeled the "E" drive, and all non-essential programs (games, photos, music, etc.) are on what is now labeled the "F" drive. Well, it seems that I can no longer access either the E or the F drives. I get the message that "E:\ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." If I look at the properties of those partitions, it only sees 0 used, 0 available and the file type is listed as "RAW". It is connected using one of those red SATA cables. Is there a possibility that the cable is bad? Would hooking the drive up using a ribbon cable be possible? (Sorry, I'm not very good with computers). Is the physical drive itself dead? Is there a way to retreive the data? Thanks, in advance, for your advice. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
