I can't access my data on my Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250Gb. I can see the drive within Windows Explorer and within Disk Management, however, it takes a long time to find the drive, and then I get notifications stating I should Format the drive before I can use it. Disk Management shows it as a Healthy Drive/partition in Raw data. A couple of months ago I was able to access the data, then it kinda stopped all of the sudden with the light on the front keeps flashing. I ran through the command prompt chkdsk f-/r- stating there was many disk errors and bad sectors. After ran a couple of times it takes forever then just stops and does not finish the process. Is there a possibility of recovering my data that was on the hard drive with a program? Any help is much appreciated.

HDD Regenerator might work, but it costs, I used it, it can find & repair bad sectors.


A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
