    If it is good then you can still do testing with HDtune (or a similar program). I had this time with a single disk. This started typing and suddenly he's gone. When I have it in another PC, and HDtune commented. You saw clearly bad sectors (red boxes)

    * They get knocked over, dropped, banged etc. In almost all cases, the resulting impact they suffer will cause problems.
    * They have a tendancy to overheat. This is due to inadequate ventilation on the external case. Some external hard drives don't contain any ventilation at all, a small number of devices may contain a fan inside the actual case to combat temperature build up.

    Symptoms:

    * If Knocked / Dropped etc: The drive will probably make a ticking / buzzing / musical noise when powered on. This is usually indicative of damage to the read / write heads &/or the motor.
    * If Overheating: The drive will suddenly die and not be recognised by the BIOS, or the computer will appear to start running slowly and noises from the external hard disk may be heard.

    Recovery possibilities: Entirely dependent on the nature of the problem. Heat associated problems are often easier to tackle than impact damage problems.
