  1. Hello, It may be several reasons for slow booting time and unrecognized HDD. Possible causes may be bad sectors, file system errors, virus and malware infection, damaged drive driver issues, overheating, SMART errors, mechanical and physical errors. I will suggest you to use antivirus software to scan your system and delete viruses if presents. Secondly you may check the bad sectors on you HDD using Stellar Data Recovery Professional. Because it has inbuilt utility call drive monitor which helps you to find the bad sectors on your hard drives.
  2. As we know that S.M.A.R.T test perform reading and analysing S.M.A.R.T parameters from the ATA, SATA/USB. It also perform reading and analysing log page from SCSI HDD and the temperature monitor too. However, this basic S.M.A.R.T. information can be misleading, since it only lets you know when your drive is near death— but you can start to experience problems even if the basic S.M.A.R.T. status is okay. To check your accurate hard drive health you can download free trial version of stellar data recovery professional. It has inbuilt utility called “Drive monitor” which gives you whole information about your hard drive health. Because of it tracks every sector of your storage drive. You can easily find out bad sectors.
  3. Hi Skulblaka, There are multiple reasons for healthy storage drive get into RAW. When we install malicious third party programs or bad handling files system become the primary cause. However, stellar data recovery professional can perform raw data recovery. You may try its trial version to check the recoverable data in a preview mode.
  4. Hi Alice, I have my personal experience on that same problem. I checked on google and found an informative blog on that time. You may check this reference given below and try manual steps. It may help you to format your hard drive. Or you want to completely wipe your hard drive so you may try BitRaser. References: https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/fix-usb-drive-not-formatted-error/
