Ill Hard Drive

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi,

I've got a sick hard drive that is going to be replaced by the manufacturer but I deseperately need to get a copy of some of the content of it. Unfortauntely I am unable to access this drive in Windows now, but it did work intermitently until a few days ago. I know the entire contents can't be gone, but I realise there are some bad sectors and some things are gone forever. I can't even scan disk or Norton's equivalent on the drive as they don't recognise it :crying: :crying: :crying: Does anyone know how I salvage any of the data?

    If you have another hard disk then use that as master and your other one as a slave drive and transfer your stuff from the slave to your new drive.
