    Question

  • My Maxtor 500GB hard drive has suddenly stopped working. I'm not able to open, move or delete most of the files and get an 0x8007045D error message. I have Vista, I've run registry cleaners but i dont have a clue what else to try. Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    Situations like Registry errors, viruses, corrupted hard drive, damage on the disks, hardware error etc are most common that can lead towards 0x8007045D error.

    Connect the hard drive to the computer and check the consistency of the drive. Check the consistency of the Disk. For this you should use the Check Disk Command (chkdsk with the drive name). This will scan the disk and show errors if any found. Using the CHKDSK /f switch you can repair the corruption on the disk too.

    If you are using any security application or firewall programs that are set to block any removable media drives then you should temporarily disable the application and then again try to connect the external hard drive to your PC.

    Meanwhile, please go to computer manufacture's driver download site and check if there is any update for the mother board drivers or BIOS.

    Regards,

  • Hello,

    first of all, running a registry cleaner if dangerous for your Windows and may cause sever problems. Please restore your system using a restore point that dates before the launch of the registry cleaners.
