    BEWARE:
    In ordxer to access MBR repair option you need to upgrade to pro version first. So if that's your only problem (and the reason you clicked this video) don't bother with these scam artists.
    FU aomei !

    TRY THIS!!! mine was a simple fix, I tried and tried everything on the videos but nothing, them realised I was stupid and hadn't actually physically checked the HDD inside the extrenal casing for it. popped it off and the HDD at slipped out of the SATA connection inside the external HDD casing, I just pushed it back in, and it worked… I suspect it slipped out when I accidently dropped it.

    Every time I start it it takes forever and when it finally show the disk it’s says not responding I closed it the first time the second time I waited for more than 30 minutes and it still said not responding so I closed it and now I’m waiting again. I’m going to try something else
