Hi, i have a external hard drive that is NTFS that won't mount it just appears in disk utility after some time connected. I have Paragon NTFS to read it. I can't get it to read on both Mac and Windows. (doesn't mount can't do a chkdsk) I have tried Data Rescue to try to fix it but it gives me this error: http://www.prosofteng.com/docs/Data-Rescue-3-Users-Guide/pages/drivefailure.htm Diskwarrior just freezes when i connect the drive. Is the drive really gone? It's really not worth to pay to get it fixed, is there something else i could do? Thanks. Solution i sort of solved it... i only did this because the files where not important. i still had the option to format the drive with disk utility, so i did and was able to use data rescue to scan for deleted files, witch i didn't do because it would take 400 hours (the drive is very slow about to fail) it was recovering files. hope this helps someone with important files.
