This has been my primary drive for my dell XPS laptop. yesterday it started behaving badly.
after boot up, the drive will work properly for about :45sec, then freeze up. mouse will continue working, but the eventually everything becomes non responsive. Ctrl + Alt + Del does nothing. I removed the drive, put it in a drive dock, and connected it as a external drive to another computer. Same thing. works fine, will transfer files etc, but after about :45sec stops working, and ejects itself from "My Computer". I would love to send this somewhere and have the data recovered and cloned to another drive.
I am pretty sure it is out of warranty. I installed a new drive in the XPS, and the computer runs like a champ. I just don't want to go through the hassle of starting from scratch. so cloning the dead drive would be great. Any suggestions?
