I ahve an damaged hdd which contains several bad sectors right at the beginning of the drive. Due to this, whenever I plug the HDD either by SATA or USB/enclosure it will freeze the system. I tried the following and it froze on all of them:
- WinPE 3/4/10
- Windows Setup DVD
- Installed Windows on HDD itself
- installed Windows on other drive with damaged one as secondary
Now, in mac or linux the HDD is semi-readable, I can copy some files off it but most of them outputs a copy error.
The issue is the same to what is described here: http://superuser.com...e-entire-system
I require some help to get this HDD to work without freezing my system. I have some some software tools that I'd like to use on it but cannot do anything while it causes the freeze.
What should I do?
