I have a Sata Portable hard 250 GB, disk that working good before. now I have a problem the computer can detected it but I can't access to the file inside. the folder partition name also change to "Local Disk (:L)", not the name I rename before.
Everytime I try to open or explore the file and this msg will come up :

"L:\is not accessible.
The request could not be performed because on an I/O device error."

I have a very important file inside and I don't want to to lost it.
please help me what I should do.

Dear Sir,

Please have it set as the main boot device and see whether the problem gets solved.
