[computer-tech-support: 8501] Re: Hard Drive

google for "disktest.exe" - this utility program will help you with determining whether or not your drive is due for the junk heap. It will repair the MBR (master boot record - is required regardless of whether a drive is bootable or not) and will also repair the MFT (master file table) as long as the mft and it's mirror are not both bad. You can also use it to copy files off of a bad drive.

I have Western Digital drive that is 5 years old. (1TB) I plugged the
drive into my computer via usb case. The computer asked if i wanted to
"fix" the drive. I was doing a Chk Dsk when the computer froze. I had
to hard restart the computer. After I restarted the computer it would
not recognize the drive anymore. I have tried to read the partition
but using UBCD it fails to ready any of the sectors. Any Ideas?
