I had enabled Wipe Free Space with MFT for my external seagate 320 GB harddisk. While completing 36% of MFT some error like "Windows Delayed Write failed" poped up in taskbar and the MFT% in the screen went back to 0%. I saw some junk folder in J:\ and the system hung. I had to switch off the computer forcefully and when I login back, my computer hangs when I connect my external hard drive.
I even tried disabling the autorun feature for this drive and try connecting it. I was thinking of deleting the junk folder (alphanumeric names with ZZ..ZZZ..ZZZ at the end). But still the system hangs after few minutes without giving me the option to explore the drive.
Is my drive corrupted? Any options?
