A customer engaged us to diagnose a Seagate 2.5" 1TB portable hard drive. Recently, when she tried to use a working file on the drive, the OS hangs turned to blue screen. She restarted the PC and this external hard disk undetectable anymore. She tried on different PCs, but all appears to be the same. The disk is still spinning when connected to the PC but undetectable. She never dropped the hard drive before and when she connected the drive, there were no abnormal sound from the drive. She has more than 3 years of work files and emails from work on the drive and they are very important for her.  

Action (Solution):
