|Okay, so I tried to open it, but it turns out it will break the case if I try. I think I would need some other tools.|
Weird thing though, I just plugged it into my laptop, where it seemed to function decently - it told me it needed to scan and fix it. Anyways, I entered the disk without doing so, and copied all the files onto my laptop instead for backup.
Then I plugged it into my desktop computer, where it tells me the same thing, and I let it scan and fix. So now, it's scanning and fixing. During this, the Scan and Fix message comes up again.
I see no trace of the previous messages I had; that it needs to format to continue.
This is what Disk Management tells me:
Just after this, I looked on My Computer, but the harddisk disappeared. And yet Disk Management tells me the exact same thing: Healthy and Active.
Also, the Repair and Fix thing has frozen, and hasn't moved at all (stopped at 91 files processed).
Edit: And now I can see the drive again in My Computer :/
