|Alright, I couldn't download the program because I'm working on what was my only good hard drive. I did try to do the chkdsk commands using the Windows disk but it said it couldn't do it because the drive format was RAW. |
The link you gave me did say that if I'm having this problem the hard drive is going to fail again even if I get it fixed. Since I can trust it anyway, I'm getting a new one. I will try to download the program after I'm up and running just to see if it can fix my old one. Then, if it works, at least other people will have a solution. I'm not sure when I'll get a new hard drive so I don't know when it will be but I'll post the results when I have them.
Thanks for the help though, I really appreciate it. Off topic but if anyone has any advice on new laptop hard drives, feel free to share. I'm just gonna get the cheapest 1 TB I can find but if there's any certain specs I should definitely look for or definitely avoid, please let me know.
Thanks again for taking the time to try to help a guy in WAY over his head with whatever the hell happened to my hard drive.
