Now to recover the lost files on my corrupt HDD, I need an equivalent amount of free space on another HDD. My other(internal) HDD will not be able to provide enough storage space for the files to be recovered, so I am forced to buy another HDD for it.
So, now I am planning to buy an external HDD with atleast 500GB storage. I'll be using it with SATA enclosure as an external HDD. Now what I want from you people is to suggest me the HDD which is best in the business these days. I want you to answer the following questions:
1- Should I go for WD or Seagate? and why?
2- Which one is comparatively cheaper?
3- How much will the USB enclosure cost?
4- Is it reliable to use internal HDD with USB enclosure? ; I haven't done this before.
I also want to know one more thing that after recovering the data from corrupt HDD, will I be able to recover my presently corrupt HDD as well? I mean will simple reformatting of the HDD do the trick ya phir kuch aur paparh belne honge?
