"incorect function" and " parameter is incorrect" external hard drive

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

my dad has given me an external hard drive that is recognised by my laptop but gives me error codes when i try to open it up. i googled the issues but couldnt really figure out a solution other than reformatting the drive and losing everything on it, he has stuff on there for his job that he needs to keep and im assuming he doesnt have any copies backed up anywhere. i am assuming there are programs that can recover at least a bit of data

ZAR. Zero Assumption Recovery.

When you absolutely have to get every bit of data back, ZAR is your friend.

tried a few times and it kept crashing the program, turns out there was only 1 thing he needed saving but he could redo it pretty easilly. probaby just ging to bin the drive as its making weird grinding sounds, my guess it that it was dropped one too many times
