My current 2tb Western Digital HDD has been acting up (similar to the post here ) and upon receiving advice that my drive was dying, I have purchased a new one. The old drive shows up on windows disk partitioner however if I try to initialise it then it states the drive is unspecified. Sometimes when I open Windows it appears with Windows Drive Repair however at a certain point it stops fixing as it is stuck at a percentage. I am unsure how to save the data off the old drive before it stops working and would rather not go to a professional just yet (to save money). If there is any free software that could help me that would be great.
