some minor hard disk problems

Postby liliwinnt6 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:50 pm

if i want a WD or hitachi hard disk drive just spin the disks when the power is on, without doing anything else (like self-testing, checking for heads, blah blah blah), what kind of hardware and software do i need? what do i need to do?

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking.

If you have an unresponsive hard drive, there are a bunch of free tools you can use to recover data and diagnose problems.

Good luck.
