yeah, i know what you mean. I was about to give it to a repair shop. But many and google has lot of positive comments on it can be recovered via test disk which is i dont know exactly how to use.
I didnt know that clean cannot be used on single partition. As i have recovered many pen drives and memory cards, i thot it would work. What i wantd was to clean up any erors thats causing lags and bsods. Even i restored a image, it kept coming.
Thank u, and i wil post my results with PW soon.
