Question about Maxtor (L01P100) 100 GB Hard Drive
I have a e-machine computer that was given me , the only problem with the machine is that the hard drive "crashed" .. it makes a clicking sound and dose not load... i have installed another drive in this machine and am using it know!, the original owner of the p.c asked me if i could get the drive to work to at least get some Pict. off... i would like to put a pc board on the drive to see if i could maybe access it long enough to get the picture off. any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. thanks and have a great day!
Lionheart, The click of death is not a good sign. If the drive is visible in the bios and not in the operating system you could try a data recovery program. a good free one is available at http://www.roadkil.net I don't know who roadkil is but he made some useful freeware like undelete and unstopcp. If that does not work you could try Active Undelete. This program will do a low level scan and recover data from active and deleted partitions. http://www.active-undelete.com Another useful tip is to disable the logical disk management service in XP. I have found with some barely recoverable drives that XP will continue to dismount them and it becomes annoying. But it sounds like the .jpgs are lost unless at this point if the above mentioned didn't work you will have to cough up $1,500 and ship it to ontrack where they will take the drive apart and recover the data at the hardware level. Good Luck Hack
