I reconnected my hard drive to my PC today after waiting for a data link cable to arrive and it's been running at 100% usage in task manager, with System and COM Surrogate being the two processes killing it. It's so slow I can't search it for files, it's basically unusable.

I really don't want to format the drive as there's files on it I still want, and I basically just connected my hard drive and booted my system, I didn't change any settings. What should I do?
