How do I find my folders with multiple file types (stored on a second Drive E:) using XP SP3, now that I boot from a different C: drive?


Have you checked to see if these hardrives have a jumper on master or slave? It's a small white or black piece that connects two pins in the hard drive. Sata drives won't have pins or jumpers

also consider plugging the drive into an IDE to USB cable and plug into a system with a different operating system. Or look up a program called r studio. it's one of the better file recovery software out there. It also recovers in "original file/older structure" which you are trying to do.

is your machine using sata drives or older IDE drives?

How do I find the folders with the files intact on a secondary internal drive, so I can move and back them up to the C: drive and an external drive?


This is an XP machine, which is no longer supported. I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and OS. After you get the newer machine, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the old hard drive(s), and copy any important files to the newer machine. Good luck.

I have a Dell desktop that runs Windows Vista. When I try to get on the computer, it seems to load but when it gets to the black screen with the scrolling/ moving bar at the bottom. It doesn't leave...


first, recover your files. You will need to use something like this data recovery program.

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

My External Hard Drive is asking me to format. Why is it and i currently have information on my external hard drive.


I guess you are using it thru USB...
This is a general issue with all external devices connected thru USB, many times the USB reacts to an external device as though they dont exist.

The best solution is to shutdown the PC remove the device from the external USB port clean the connection, the USB cable connector, USB port etc and reconnect.

This situation could also happen if you have dropped the device, any little shake/**** could make changes to the internal system of the disk.

Try using a different USB cable to connect it to the PC

My personal experience is..... USB devices should be used sparingly and for things that are not critical like (MP3, mobile, camera etc) I rarely use external harddrive thru USB, never to store critical data.....an issue ever with the disk the data is almost gone unless it's recovered by an hardware expert after opening the drive and thru special system/data recovery devices.
The last option is to format it again, many times my MP3 player has been funny and gave me similar read issue and I had to format it many times to be read again by the PC, so i learnt a leason from that......never to connect a harddisk from USB, it's better to have larger harddisk inside the PC and use some DVD disks to carry your critical data to the place of work....(they cost less also) if they fail just throw them and use a new DVD disk

Could not recognize and no spin


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but from the sound of it you can't. At least not cheaply. The drive must be rebuilt to save the data. Your only option is to bring the drive to a HDD Recovery service for a Clean Lab Recovery. Expect to spend 600-1000.

Sorry Again :-(

When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:

Unless you are willing to shell out far more then you already have no. The only other method is that used by large companies that need to recover data from servers etc. And to say it's expensive is a massive understatement.
The only thing you will take away is the knowledge that a backup of anything should not be kept on the same drive.

Sorry for the bad news.
