By vivre in it, tips

Yes, you read it correctly sir! I managed to revive the deads! 🙂

It happened last week, when suddenly, without any reason, my main portable harddisk failed. I tried several apporaches; connected it through different pc, using different cable, and even different way of booting pc. All of them led to same ending; I couldnt access it.

Just when I was about to give up, I remembered something important; a very useful DOS command!


chkdsk command details

I used this particular command, extensively back in UTP, as power breakdown happened regularly, resulting in windows error during startup. CHKDSK if used properly, will check for the harddisk file structure and repair if any. Simple, yet brilliant command. I like it!

Quickly, I plugged the portable harddisk back and waited patiently for the windows to assign the drive letter. I purposely left it before going lunch, just to make sure the sytem stabilized. Next, through command prompt, I performed the ‘operation’ on my beloved portable harddisk (inspired by my wife’s favourite tv series, Grey’s Anatomy)

Alhamdulillah, the ‘operation’ went well.. The ‘patient’ has been saved.. and still breathing as we speak ! 😀

successful 'operation' =D

So guys, whenever your harddisk becomes inaccessible, don’t simply throw it out. Berusahalah dulu ya ! 🙂

Ganbattene ! ~

p/s: I managed to revive Afifie’s harddisk too last week, Alhamdulillah. So that’s TWO! 😀
