Hard disk working very slowly
After a week of purchasing my new HDD, it showed me an error stating that my hard drive was detected with imminent failure (attribute #1 error). At first I ignored this because the system seemed to be working OK. But in the past few days it has slowed down very much. It is a Seagate 1TB. It hangs and then works for 2 seconds, then hangs, and then works and this goes on. I just want to know if the data on it can be salvaged. Help would be appreciated
Edit: The HDD works very slowly now, and remains stuck on the Windows 10 boot screen until bluescreening with a BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO stop code. Chkdsk doesn’t work as apparently the hard disk is write protected and can’t be accessed.
