Ok I had a virus on my pc a few days ago and through my negligence I waited too long to run a full system check and on restarting the pc it wouldnt go into windows just a black screen with the mouse cursor. Anyway no big deal most of my stuff is saved on an external. So I pluged my hdd as a slave into another computer to run a virus scan it took out a lot of files and when I pluged it back it it had the same problem so I figured what the hell time for a fresh install anyways. Now today I was going to xfer my files that I had on there to my external and pluged the gimped drive into a recently purchased enclosure (NSP-E525) upon firing it up the HDD began to make a lot of noise as it began to spin. thought it was just it starting up but then I smelt a electric fire smell and quickly shut it off. Upon inspection It was coming from the HDD. Just recently I tested it on my other pc installing it internally it imediatly began making the same noise so I shut down again. What just happened... and is there any recovering?!
