I don’t know if this is the right section to post but here’s my problem.While I was renaming a folder (on Windows >.<) my external HDD failed.Suddenly it wouldn’t let me acces anything.The name of the partition changed in “Local Disk”.Did some google search, found a soft that could recover my data.(torrents). Of course it had spyware/virus in it.So when I opened it…2-3 “antispyware” installation popped up out of nowhere.Now because of them I’m unable to connect to the internet on win.(That’s not the problem , I can reinstall it anytime, but I just wanted to show a disavantage of being a user of Microsoft’s Windows).
The problem persists within Linux. "Unable to mount the volume ‘Quad Damage’."Is there any way to recover my files and…if possible to “repair” my hard-drive?
