I was along with my uncle who gave me a drive to check meant for him that wasn’t functioning. I asked how old was the drive, he mentioned 9 years, I asked if he had a backup, none (yes I know too, lol). It’s an usb 2 . 0 drive, and after attempting 2 different cables, once the drive is connected, the read light of the drive starts blinking forever. Merely refresh the file explorer, I can see the drive, yet no info is displayed, and even when clicked, the particular explorer hangs. Trying to display it using Windows Hard drive Management just hangs the application. Tried it on a Linux OS and it fails using a message stating either the hard drive is faulty or maybe the file system is bad and suggesting using chkdsk /f on windows. At this point, may be the only option to take the generate to a data recovery program?
