    Well that may add up to why you made a new thread regarding "non mountable device"

    Regarding CheckDisk running for so long (and possibly hurting the drive - sadly) You must have done a full surface scan, when all you needed to do was to run a repair. Obviously something became mixed up with the exact procedure, but this long scan could have caused adverse affects.

    Yes it is an excellent idea to get a USB adapter to connect your Harddrive externally to your working computer. But as this costs money (for the adapter, and time to actually get it) I'd like to restate that you just need to plug it in internally as a secondary drive (discussed earlier) This way it is free, and will likely stop any USB issues (drivers and slowness of backing up)

    Therefore if you could go back and read over the part where I mentioned this, it may be best to somehow learn or ask someone in the know, to help with implementing this free idea.
