Disk crash data recovery

At first my system was slow, then I got endless error messages on delayed write. When I tried to run scandisk it failed several times, but eventualy when I rebooted in went into scandisk automaticaly. Scandisk reported many bad sectory, bad file descriptors, etc. Eventualy it hung, and when I tried to reboot, the system went into a reboot loop. I tried connecting an USB-IDE convertor to the disk and reading the files, but it hangs my computer.

Re: disk crash data recovery

First do a fdisk
see if your drive is detected and what partitions does it show.
, then check if you can see on setup bios options.
if there on bios options.... lucky .... drive can be retrived of data.... and may be restored too.. but any clicks and sounds mean drive is ready to crash ,,back up data as it can go crash any time. more assistance 0-9-3-2-1-1-0-1-7-1-7-

Re: disk crash data recovery

Spinrite is OK but the HDD regenerator that the foreign guy made that is included on Hiren's boot disk has fixed drives that spinrite wouldn't. Download a copy of the current Hiren's boot disk and run the HDD regenerator. It also includes spinrite. Hack

REmove the hard drive from computer, place it on a caddy and connect it to another computer, try to acces it. If accesible, recover all the data you can if not, download a recovery program from the internet.

There is companies that make data recovery, you could try them, there is also some for private use, but they are not that good. But those companies will pay a lot, if you have a good home insurance you could try them to pay recovery.

Depends how much you appreciate the information on hard disk.

My harddisk says invalid disk data no data files found


Hi,

Sorry to hear of your difficulty. Usually in your kind of situation data can easily be recovered using any data recovery software.But my personal suggestion to you is to first try to run a demo version first and if you see directory list of your lost data then only proceed with the purchase.

Sometimes when OS fail to install then file System of your hard drive can go corrupt which can result to invalid disk error.

Hi,

Unfortunately you have a hard drive fault, it says this because the hard drive is not being read properly.

This will need to be replaced with a new hard.You can get all the information off it but you will need to buy a USB to SATA cable and once you have fitted the new hard and you have your laptop up an running then you can transfer the files to the new hard drive.

Thanks
Jason

How to recover data from a faulty hard drive


As long as the drive is spinning you should be able to recover files with any decent file recovery program. I've just spent half a day recovering about a 1000 photographs that had been deleted and apart from all the unwanted stuff that also gets recovered, it all went well.
If the drive is not spinning or is making clicking noises then your options are much reduced. You will most likely have to use the services of a professional data recovery company - and they don't come cheap.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered
