    Hello my name is SATA 1TB Hard disk and I'm a failure addict.


    So this morning I try to boot up the pc and it gives me the disk failure error. Windows is installed on a separate ssd but for some reason it decided to not boot up anyway.
    I have some important stuff in that drive so I do need to get em before I throw it away. Has anyone actually went through clickbait hell that is offered by google search and found a way to backup the failed disk here?

    I'd recommend running an USB-booteable copy of Linux (Lubuntu, for example) and try to mount your HDD from there to try to recover the data. I have yet to do it, but I'm just lazy because I know it will take me a whole day to do it...

    alright I did find a way to boot, turned off smart setting from bios which prevents damaged disks from getting booted. ASUS PLS

    yeah that was my last resort, fortunately the disk is not that corrupt, I was able to just boot and transfer all the files, bought the 850 evo ssd for replacement, worked out great. thx for the suggestions tho
