Hi, I have some problem with my external hard drive and I would appreciate any advise you can give me to solve this. I have Toshiba 500GB hard drive that I bought just over 2 years ago. I am using it to backup my data from pc, and sometimes to play a movie from it. Recently I can't access number of folders on it. When I select them the drive begins to spin and I wait for a few minutes before seeing an error message that it is not accessible. Some other folders are fine and I can open them and see the files there. I never did any maintenance to the hard drive, I only formatted it from FAT32 to NTFS in the very beginning and then just copied files to it, occasionally. What can I do to get my files back? I did defragmentation of the hard drive, it took 2 full days to complete, but it didn't help. Not sure it was suppose to help in the first place. I don't mind if I can only extract the data, I'll buy a new hard drive and copy it there, hopefully it will be more reliable. Any way I can do it? Thank you for help.
