I have a Seagate 200gb hard drive that suffered a power serge.
I am trying to recover what i can from it however when i put it back in to my computer all i get for about 10min is a black screen then windows will start.
Once windows is running it takes about 5min for each step of trying to run the Data recovery demo program i downloaded.
The mother board can see the drive however windows can not.
Can anyone help me?
Why is this drive slowing down my computer so much?
How would you suggest for me to recover what i need?
My computer works fine with just the new hard drive in it.
I would just recommend getting a new hard-drive, cause if you had a real bad power surge there is probably no hope for your Seagate.
You could try getting a hard-drive enclosure so you can hook your hard-drive into a usb port. To try to recover it.
