  1. i recently bought a new drive an 80gig hitach. so what i did is installed in to my pc making it my slave drive. i opened computer management then disk management to format it using NTFS. it was good and i saw no problems at all, so i decided to partition it (using disk management) then transfer all my files to my new hardrive. but after i shut down my pc. the hardisk cannot be accessed ----> "THE OPERATION DID NOT COMPLETE, CHECK THE SYSTEM EVENT LOG FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ERROR" then when i hit ok
    "AN UNEXPECTED ERROR HAS OCCURED. CHECK THE SYSTEM EVENT LOG FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE ERROR. CLOSE THE DISK MANAGEMENT CONSOLE, THEN RESTART DISK MANAGEMENT OR RESTART THE COMPUTER" i did restart it but it doesn't work. what will i do? can i still retrive the files on my new drive?

    Can you access the drive and the partitions in disk management?

    This does not sound too good. What happens if you schedule a disk check and reboot - does the chkdsk routine run?

    Go to windows explorer, right click on your hard drive > properties > tools > error checking > check now > select both options > start and accept run at reboot or similar.

    Just a thought - which files did you transfer to the new drive? All of them?

    If the contents are important then there are specialist data recovery people who can extract almost anything from a drive. But they are not cheap. You are the only one who can put a price on your data.
