Did not get any sort of smart warning. All disk recovery options fail as max LBA is zero. Windows 10 Disk managers states I need to initialize but then reports I/O error. I read that HDAT2CD may be able to change the parameter so my BIOS can see the drive but I am wondering what other options are out there. I really don’t want to lose this data, but I also dont want to spend $$$$$$$$ for forensic level recovery.
Have tried to run HDAT2CD in DOS mode but rufus and FREEDOS will not load on my machine.
Any suggestions, Drive is WDC WD20 EZRZ-00Z4HB0?
I am also reasonably sure I am just out of warranty.
I have done most of the basics, HDDScan, testdisk, winhex wont read past blk 0 due to the capacity issue. Haven’t tried to force write block 0 but that what I though Win 10 Disk Mgmt Init Disk did which fails.
Thanks, I am pulling my hair out as I cannot get even the simple FreeDOS to load with my usb.
