Hard Drive Data Recovery

My Northgate blew its motherboard and I was told it could not be repaired. I bought another computer and transplanted the Northgate hard drive into it. All the information now appears on hard drive "D" and I can't get any of the programs to open. Do I need a new recovery disc or is there another way to access the date stored on the transplanted hard dirve?

How can I retrieve data on a dropped/malfunctioned seagate portable expansion drive?


Not a DIY task. You need a professional with data recovery skills. There are few good ones around.

You can purchase an "empty" disk-drive enclosure, and then "transplant" your current disk-drive into the new case. That should recover 100% of your data.

Take the old enclosure to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a "compatible" new enclosure.

Probably $20 to $40.

Ubs pin broke


If the warranty is still valid, ask W.D. if they will repair it.

If not, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive.
Buy a new "empty" enclosure ($30 to $50 at any computer-store), and "transplant" your disk-drive into it, to preserve your data.

Ticking hard drive


Sadly that about sums up your issue when dealing with a ticking drive. This sound is normally caused by a hardware malfunction of your drive controller board, motor or head. If your drive is still detectable under your OS you can attempt to recover the data with a software recovery utility. However, be warned that the more you use a failing drive the worse the damage will become and it could possibly increase the cost to have it recovered.

The reason for the high price tag on the data recovery service is due to companies having to open your drive inside a clean room to avoid any dust damaging your data. They then replace the failed parts on your drive or transplant your platters holding the data into working hardware to recover said data. While some of these repairs can be done by hardcore computer users it is very rare to do it at home.

Hard drive failure in system less than 2 years old!!


Since you are comfortable with working inside your computer, the best thing to do now is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of hard drive, SATA or EIDE.

Alternately you can use a live linux cd, boot up with that, and transfer your data to an external drive.

Once your data is safe, try booting to the Windows cd and attempt a repair installation.

And finally, yes, hard drives can go bad in 2 years or less.

Need to run the recovery XP disk


Since you have the XP licence key, try to get hold of an XP install CD and do a repair installation, using your own key when asked for it.
