Windows 7: No access to 2nd partition after hibernation: column filesystem: RAW

Actually I do not know for sure if all of my files / data are back again, I would not notice it (at the moment) if there is a file missing, but it does not seem to be like that, it looks really good, so I guess all of my data are still there, respectively back again.

Yes, if I should get such an error message again - I do not hope so - I will know what to do immediately.

No, no, not at all, I have to say thank you thousands of times, you saved my data, so again, thank you very, very much.

I do not know how many bad sectors were found by the diagnostic tools but presume that it is just a handful since the drive was caught in the early stage of failure. Whatever, the data in those bad sectors is already lost. So some files will invariably be corrupt and yes you will come to know only when you access those files. But majority of the files must be alright.

Yes, not more than a handful, 3 bad sectors.

Actually I had hoped these sectors or at least 1 or 2 of them (I assume one bad sector had caused that issue) would have been marked as bad sector before a file had been written to it. If I am right, the OS when it recognizes a bad sector somehow marks / locks / disables it to not be written (again).

Yes, by far the majority is saved, may be I will never know.

Every HDD has a certain percentage of total sectors ( this varies from manufacturer to manufacturer) reserved to take in bad sectors. This keeps going in the background seemlessy without the user ever knowing it. When all the reserved sectors have been exhausted then the new bad sectors created have no place to go and that is when the HDD grumbles and starts grinding its teeth. And that is when the user finds it. In your case the failure had just started and you should consider yourself lucky you were able to catch it before it became worse. There are cases when there was a sudden deluge of bad sectors knocking out the HDD entirely and alongwith it all the data. A regular backup of important data only can save you from such catastrophies.A mechanical device and for that matter even an electronic device can fail anytime. It can be a slow cancer or sudden heart attack. God only knows.

Yes, I wished God would tell me before my drives fail. Yes, so I had luck in bad luck. I do not even want to think of my drives totally knocked out completely with complete loss of data. So I will consequently do a back up and may be use CrystalDisk or / and the manufactures programs to control the health of the drives.

Many thanks again for you great help.
