External HDD not initialiazed and unallocated RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi

    I am using WD internal hdd with external enclosure for my backup purpose.

    Two days before it stopped working and doesn't shows in 'my computer'. But shows in disk management as not initialized and unallocated. When I tried to initialize it it shows a error 'Data error cyclic redundancy check'. I am unable to create partition in it.

    HDD spins freely as usual.

    I don't need the data in it. But I just need HDD to work.

    Thanks in Advance.
