|I have a USB 500gb SATA HDD that has decided to die recently. When I plug it into my laptop it whirrs for a bit, Windows recognises that it has been plugged in, then it clicks and stops. It shows up under device manager, but not explorer. Disk management reports it as not initialized, and refuses to interact with it saying the operation failed due to an I/O error. It also seems to think it's a 2tb drive for some reason. Is it completely shagged or is there anything I can do to get any of the files off of it?|
