Hard drive error 301 on smart disk test

There is no way that a person or company, even data recovery specialists which come with a very high cost,  can guarantee that you won't lose data.


A 301 error is indicative of a failed or failing hard disk.  You can remove the disk and try to copy data from it.


You will need to replace it with a new one in order to continue using the notebook.
