i assume u can still access that drive (?)...

some ideas just off my head...

Backup most important data 1st. use RAR/ZIP to compress yr files in that drive in manageable chunks and move them to yr computer side. unzip/unrar will naturally check for errors.

As of now, no idea of the source of the problem.

qs

* hdd still accessible?

* how often does that happen so far?

* try different connection cable (USB?)?

* how did u know it's a CRC issue? win popup warning? driver warning? smart warning?

* how old is the external drive?
