i'm having some trouble with my hard drives. the short version of the story is that I foolishly tried to compress my two USB hard drives while they were filled with files. One hard drive succesfulyl completed, but the other 120Gig drive was interrupted by a power outage. So when i returned to windows, the hard drive kept causing explorer to stop responding and restart. Now i have managed to recover this drive by firstly using acronis disk director boot disk, where i copied all the files back over to the other hard drive, and then wiping the partition. i then used chkdsk, to correct the files record errors. but now, when i attempt to copy the files back across i get the 0x80070570 error code, saying the files or directory is corrupt.
my question is, is there a way for me to recover all of these files? is it because they are uncompressed on a compressed drive? should i try to recompress the drive with these new files on it, or should i just give up hope of recovery.
