Specs: Windows 7
hi Sobrien,
I am facing same problem you have solved in Jan 2014.
amy old HDD which is now connected through USB as external is not working properly. local drive G is listed in my computer but not accessible.Im using win7.
I have run chkdsk for it using chkdsk g:/f
after stage two it is showing - Index verification completed. An unspecified error occurred (696e647863686b2e 15dd)

Can you please tell me, how finally you sorted the problem? Which action helped you to get access of the drive?
Soumi

"chkdsk g:/f"
Should be chkdsk g: /f

Use Copy & Paste so you don't get typo's.

Try chkdsk g: /f /r

Or, reboot > My Computer, right click on G drive > Properties > Tools. Check now, tick both boxes & hit > Start.

Please give us a link to the post to which you are referring. Without at least its title we would have a heck of a job to find it.

Have you tried the external in another computer? It might have died completely although chkdsk is obviously worth a shot.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks Johnw.

It is most unlikely that Sobrien will come back after all this time and spot this new post. If you want to contact him/her you could use the Private Message facility. This should link to yours:

Best we try to fix, waiting to hear back from Soumi.

Here is another possible.

A Chkdsk command fails with an unspecified error on a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that uses a low frequency AMD CPU

Wow, it's like no one takes the time to read the thread in question.

As sobrien said, he got the error when he unplugged the hard drive while the chkdsk was running. This is a bad thing, and produced his error. He then plugged the drive back in and restarted chkdsk. It completed successfully.

Are you running a scan against an external drive? If so, try a different port, and verify the enclosure is good. If not, try running a scan in Safe Mode. If that doesn't work, try moving it to an external enclosure. If that doesn't work, the drive is most likely dead. You could try replacing the HDD's logic board, but your time would be better spent restoring from backup.

Re #6, first bits.

Well I guess it would have been a whole heap better if the poster had raised a new question to the forum rather than directing it to someone on an old post. It would have then been addressed in its own right.

sorry it was my mistake, not providing the link.
the link is - http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...

the drive is not dead. I saw all the files when boot using USB. and many of them can be copied too. but the process is too slow to use.

I have post to Sobrein, after posting here. Actually I am new to the forum so not able to find personal contact link initially. And till do not know how to connect one's profile in my post as Razor2.3 has done.

Anyway, thank you all for till considering my post and for trying to help me.

I must give you all a detail about my problem.
my laptop dropped from a height suddenly when it was logging off. After that it stopped booting. After several try finally I have replaced the HDD and old HDD is now connected as external through USB2.0.
I have tried to to chkdsk in one of the partition of that damaged drive and got the above mentioned error.
When I initially tried to boot and failed, I used bootable USB to do an inspection. That time all the drives were showing properly and data were available and as I have mentioned above, I able to copied some files too from one drive to another external drive.
After installing the new HDD I was trying to retrieve data from damaged one data recovery software (Recover Data NTFS .lnk) and suddenly the USB got disconnected (may be due to some vibration). After that 3 out of 4 drives have become inaccessible. They are there in my computer list but not opening; even not responding to right click.
tried from disk manager. no hope.
from command prompt, diskpart command is opening new window with PC details but 'diskpart>' is not coming.
I have very important data in those drives. Research data of last two years are also there.
So, desperately need them back.
Hope people here will able to support me.

For the future (and everyone else), make sure that all important data is on at least two drives and the most critical is backed up to a third location (possibly even DVD's put into fireproof or bank safe). Make sure that all copies and back ups are accessible on another machine.

I hope that you do recover your data but my only experience found that they are generally better at recovering the most common file types (Office, pictures, music, etc) than less common ones.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Also try this one. Against all odds a poster on here managed to retrieve a good bit of lost data, after trying a stack of other programs:

Thanks to all for your supports, specially to Derek and Johnw. I am going through all the tools one by one. As each disk is of 60GB, so it will take a bit long. I shall write back after getting some result; +ve or -ve whatever it will be, I shall report here.

OK, sure, let us know how you get on. If any tool found most then that would be useful to the forum.

Wise Data Recovery: Not able to detect the partitions of HDD connected through USB.
ZAR92: not responding (system hanged)
Recover Data for Windows v 1.1: scan completed but file type not matched, so no recovered file displayed.
Lazesoft Recovery Suite Home: right now scanning.
If the last one fails then I have decided to try with EaseUS.

modification (04-12-2014)
Lazesoft Recovery Suite Home: scans and shows all lost folders with subfolders and files, but not a single one is open-able.
ZAR92: demo version finally able to run and scanning for last 24hrs. It will take approximately another 24 hrs. After that I shall post the updated information about this scan.

ZER92 suddenly failed in between the scan.
I am totally confused.

Can anyone tell me any other better recovery software?

"I am totally confused"

You do have the drive connected to a good computer?

Don't think my wording was correct for you to understand.

The faulty drive has to be slaved to a good computer.
