Hard Disk failure

\015 Hi everyone. thanks for taking the trouble to read this. I have a dell\015\012desktop and my secondary hard disk is failing. i have partitioned the\015\012hard disk into two but i already have a primary disk. the primary disk\015\012seems to work fine. but the secondary disk asks me to format it anytime\015\012i try to access any of the two partitions. i cant afford to format it\015\012because i have a lot of important data on it. thanks again for reading\015\012and i hope you can give me some help here. thanks.\015

Answers :

Try to run CHKDSK from command prompt, and if that doesnt work, its probably corrupt / hard to recover
Ok, If you want to Keep all the data AND be able to boot into that secondary Hard Disc, Then You Need toBoot into your primary Hard drive, Navigate to the Secondary Hard Drive from within Windows.................
\015\012then, back the data you want to save onto: DVD-Rs, CD-Rs, External Hard Disc, Flash Drive, etc..
\015\012And Then Delete the partitions and Reformat it.
\015\012If That doesn't fix your problems completely, then your Hard Drive has seen better days and needs to be replace. But I'd Try The Above First......at least this way, You won't lose your data!
