If it doesn't function with multiple PCs then your hard drive has probably failed.


Sorry for the bad news

Hi, Abinash

Check if the drive is visible in Device Manager and BIOS. Unfortunately, the truth is that your HDD really may have failed. Try attaching the drive to another OS, like Linux for example. You may get enough access to backup some valuable data. I presume we are talking about an external drive, so try it with another USB cable.

Hope this helps
