Jumanji, are you online? can you take a look at this? All the partitions show up, I assigned drive letters but it says the partition is in raw and hence needs to be formatted.

Yes jumanji is on line.
Notice the green square in the top right corner of his post.
I would recommend not doing anything unless jumanji instructs you to.

You can bet on that Jack. I am not doing anything and not moving my hdd an inch till jumanji suggests anything. Want to make sure I get the data out from this hdd.

Again thanks to both of your perseverance in helping me out.

PS - I couldn't agree with you more Jack on that noise that this hdd is making...gets me nervous at times..

Ok PrashanthBatia, Now safely remove your drive and keep it aside. Let me thinkover tonight and we shall continue tomorrow.

When you successfully remove the drive post a message.

Attached is the message I normally get when I try to remove it by clicking on USB in system tray and try to eject it.

I have got nothing open which can keep the drive in question busy. I have closed disk management, windows explorer which were open earlier however I still receive same message.

Shall I keep the drive connected to my laptop overnight?

A HD making a clicking noise is not normally making a good sound. Hopefully, thread starter and jumanji will arrive at a solution soon.

Do a total Windows shutdown. When computer's completely off; remove the problem device and store until jumanji and you resume the next day. He will advise when to stick that HD back in.
