Is tright here a way to save any kind of of the 1.5 TB of data on the old drive? Thanks males.

You Can clone the drive using A bootable cloning Software favor Acronis. Chances are that it would certainly reason you headaches given that the data is likely damaged.

Personally I would acquire an exterior drive and also a brand-new drive. Connect the brand-new drive and the dead driver and attempt to clone it. If the clone is successful boot right into a Linux live cd and also copy individual papers or folders of vital stuff you desire favor pictures music and also documents to the outside. Then I would certainly wipe the new drive and also perform a fresh install of windows. Pull the I formation off the external drive and open the records to test which ones are sensible and also delete any type of corrupted file you discover.

Hello stingreay99!

This is quite an unpleasant situation! :/

The initial error you've received about failing to boot from the drive, is resulted in once the mechanism can't detect a bootable OS source. Usually this indicates HDD faitempt. :/

The SMART attribute #5 is the Realsituated sectors count. It implies the count of realsituated sectors. These are sectors via read/write/verification error(s), if the count gets as well high, that's damaging for the gadget. Tright here really isn't a deal with. :/

I would imply you to gain a brand-new drive and reinstall your OS on it. Then attach this damaged drive externally utilizing a USB to SATA adapter and also see if it reflects up in the mechanism, how and also please write-up a screenswarm of Disk Management then.
