I hava a WD element 500GB HD, it was dropped on the floor and became unreadable.
I plug in to windows and it detects a 2048MB drive in Computer > Manage > Disk management, of course it cannot be opened or recognized.
Just scanned my External Hard drive with Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics. It shows an error that
|Test Error Code:||08-Too many bad sectors detected.|
I know it maybe dead already, however i have a lot of important working and daily data on it. Is there any other way will help my External HDD to fix/repair the bad sectors?
