    BSOD, trying to recover lost partition from external hard


    I'm trying to recover lost partition and files from external USB hard drive (Maxtor Portable 250GB).
    I'm using disk Internals sofitware and the software finds the files, but when I try to save them on the drive, each time I get a watchdog, or another BOSD error.

    Here are the dumps.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

    Do your still need help with this problem?
    I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.

    Start with these diagnostics on the USB hard drive: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
    If the hard drive is dead/dying, this could easily be the cause of the BSOD's

    I like the GetDataBack software from Data Recovery - Data Recovery Software - RAID Recovery - NAS Data Recovery
    It's free to see what you can recover, but it costs $80 (last I checked) to actually recover it.

    Hello usasma. I'm still having problems, thanks for your input.
    I'm trying now Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure,
    and will post the results here after.

    I figured that I had a problematic RAM chip, but after removed, I still get BSODs, When trying to scan the external Portable Hard Drive ("Maxtor 250G").

    I'll try the Diagnostic procedure that you suggested, and will let you know.
    May be the Disk is irreversibly broken, and it will give BSODs for ever.
