After some days I noticed that if I shut down the computer and turn off power supply, when I start it again the drive shows in the list. I can even access it, but soon after I get a message "Delayed Write Failed" and the drive disappears again.
So yesterday I thought I'd give it another try. I went to Recycle Bin settings and completely removed this drive, so nothing is saved there. I turned off the computer, turned off power supply and left it overnight to rest. In the morning, as expected, the drive appeared in the list fully accessible. But when I tried to copy one file to another drive, it almost freezed. Time left varied from 30 minutes up to 150 for a movie little more than 1Gb big. I tried to back up my files in DVDs, but althought the DVD was burned in a short time, data verification found problems in every file.
What is wrong with the drive? Is it repairable? Is there I way I can save my files?
