If the hard drive is bad, it's bad. If your data is extremely important, your only recourse may be to take it to a data recovery service, but that will cost you big bucks. Unfortunately, Seagate HDDs have a high failure rate & the ST3000DM001 is one of their worst.

Have you looked for that drive in Windows Disk Management?

Hi Goad, ask your local pc repair shop if they can help.

Sometimes, a disk can be cooled, and this will allow it to be read long enough to copy all the data off.

Surely if the drive is only 6 months old, the makers may be able to help under warranty.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
