Question about Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200 GB Hard Drive
I need to get the data off this drive. Believe it became currupt from software that got installed. The drive doesn't show up in explorer but does in bios and in device manager. The drive comes up with the whole thing as being unallocated. Does anyone know how to retrieve data off of a drive in this condition. once i get the data i need i will reformat and reinstall. Just very important that i get some of the info first. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You can use a program like Data Recovery Wizard which is able to recover the file system and files of a partition which has been reformatted. I believe they have a trial you can download that may do the job.
Otherwise the program costs several hundred dollars, and it would be better to take it to a PC shop for drive recovery.
Know that I have not used the program, nor the company, and of course do not endorse them - however, this program would seem to be your fix. As I cannot speak to the reliability of that particular program, I can only say to be careful and hopefully you can recover everything you need.
(please Rate if it works out for you!)
