Just now, after I deleted a file (a rather large file) on my Hard Drive, my computer became mad slow and acting all glitchy and stuff. So I went and restarted my computer (Start, shut down, restart). After it restarted, I can't access that hard drive anymore. I go into DOS prompt, and it says "Data Error (Cyclic-Redundancy Check)". When I try double clicking it in windows, it says "This drive have not been formatted." I tried to run scandisk on it, but it says it can't access that drive. I tried defragging it, and it says the same. What's going on???
All my homeworks and stuff are on it, i can't afford to lose all of it... Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
EDIT: Although I could not access it, I went to Device Manager, and my HD was listed, and says it is working properly. I'm running under Windows XP, with a Western Digital 100GB HD, and my 2nd HD, the Western Digital 160GB HD, is the one that is giving me the error.
