External Drive Failed Due to Hardware Mistake ( Cry for Help )

admin 25 May , 2022 0 Comments data recovery

Been having issues with my gfs external drive ( 2 TB Seagate SRD0NF1 ). It doesn’t populate on document explorer. It powers upon so the cable isn’t a problem. And I’ve even tried connecting to my laptop instead of her desktop to see if this was the computer having the problem not reading it. Yet alas, I’ve failed miserably.

After some digging in the net, We went ahead to storage management and found the drive on there as “Disk 1”. Although it was indicating that the drive wasn’t initialized. After trying to initialize this, I got the error “the request failed due to a fatal device hardware error”. I actually don’t believe she’s ever bodily damaged the drive. So that as for me, I’m a bit stumped on what to do next. So kind redditors, what help and advice do you have to offer in this awful need of data salvaging?
