Hello,

I have a HDD which for some unknown reason decided to brick, loose all data on it,

is thier a way of fixing this ?

many thanks in advance,

Stuart

1. I believe your drive was INSIDE EXTRNAL CHASIS

Is it?

2. Your drive was plugged in under WinXp.

Your SATA driver has a 32-bit LBA limit. You need to update your driver (eg Intel RST) or select AHCI mode for your SATA controller in BIOS.
