I can't access the file in portable HDD

July 4, 2011 at 02:53:38
Specs: Windows XP
I have an Western Digital 500GB portable HDD (NTFS format), which shown in "My Computer", but I can't open the files in it. When I open the folder in the HDD, I can see the list of all my files.
Also, the error message of "Lost Delayed-Write Data, The system was attempting to transfer file data from buffers to FILENAME.The write operation failed, and only some of the data may have been written to the file." shown up sometimes.

This is what I'd tried so far...
1) I tried to perform error check on the drive: Drive's Property => Tools => Checking... (under Error Check) => Start. But, "Windows was unable to complete the disk check" message prompted.

2) I downloaded the TestDisk which recommended by some of the people in the forum / solution to disk recovery. Unfortunately, the problem HDD didn't display in the TestDisk.

3) I had also tried some File Recovery software available online, such as...
a) PC Inspector
b) GetDataBack for NTFS
c) Recuva
But, none of them work...

Please advise what I need to do next.

Thank you!

Remove the drive from the enclosure and try in another. If you can't even see the drive it seems to me to be an enclosure issue.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
