    Large drives will take time to read sometimes.
    Especially via USB.

    How is this drive interfaced?

    When it happened to me, I purchased an external shell that was USB 3.0 and put the old HDD in that. I recovered my data and now have an external HDD to back things up to.

    I did the same as RumoredNow. That will work, UNLESS your hard drive is encrypted ... Then it's more complicated
