    Hard Disk corruption [FONT=verdana, arial, helvetica]At first the folders on my 200 gig WD weren't opening.
    The message I got was " corrupted or unreadable"
    Then upon the rebooting my PC scan disk started to del files "deleting orphan file record segment"
    After about 5 minutes I decided that it wouldn't be wise to let it delete my files, so I unplugged the power cord.
    When my system rebooted the hard drive wasn't opening up
    I have tried using Sirens boot disk, ontrack software, easy recovery with no apparent success.

    Please help me , I'm on the verge of being despaired
    That 200 gig hard drive had my most precious stuff such as documents appz music edu stuff, ebooks and many more priceless info

    P.S a person who helps me fix the problem get 25$Us dollar reward

    Sounds like maybe your hard drive is fucked up. Should have had a backup!

    you could try putting it in the freezer for an hour, sometimes thats your last resort.

    Pop that drive into another machine that boots. Try to copy your data off, one folder at a time. If a filesystem isn't recognized... try Norton Utilities. If that doesn't work, pop it into a linux box and mount the drive. Sometimes that works.

    Then if you REALLY want your files back, then send it to a data recovery place, pay alot of money, and next time backup.

    Throw the funky drive into another box and slave it. Just another option. :)
