Overwritten Hard Drive

While trying to read another hard drive from my XP PC somehow my secondary slave drive was overwritten. I have no idea how this could possibly have happened but it did. My question is the data that is on the disk now is very minimal compared to what was on the drive. Is there recovery software available to possibly recover the data/files that were on the drive?

Thanks!

I tried to format my Samsung s2 Portable hard drive from NTFS to Fat32 and now my Toshiba laptop will not read my hard drive


Be careful, don't put anything new or do any operation on your drive no matter if your Samsung drive can be read or not because it can product your files, all of your files in your drive will not be overwritten or deleted. If you still cannot use it (means it can not be read), you can try to format it again and use the data recovery software to help you to recover lost data. Here is one for you uflysoft.com. But you should pay attention, make sure you can recover lost data first, then try, just try the software, OK? God bless you.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

There should be jumpers on the back of both hard drives. You need to set the primary hard drive jumper to MASTER and the secondary hard drive jumper to SLAVE. Here is a picture of the jumper settings.

I thought I had backed up my c drive in my external hard drive, so I went ahead and reinstalled windows xp. Now when I connect my external hard drive there is nothing on the c drive and it says 1kb right...


No there is no way of getting it all back as you have overwritten your hard drive. You can try by using win_undelete.exe to see if you can retrieve any of the data that may be left.
Sorry.

Dell2 2400 BIOS F2 reads backwords.


It sounds like you may have the IDE cables hooked up backwards on your motherboard.. The IDE cable slot on the motherboard labled IDE1 should be where your Hard drives are if you want them to read as primary. The Optical drives are usually on IDE2, designating them as secondary.
Let me know if you need more help.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camcorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.

My precious files...


If you have not written anything to the disk since you accidentally formatted it I can recover all your files for you. If you wrote any files to it some of the files will be ruined. I have FBI forensic software that can do what you need and more. Rate this fixya and post an e-mail address and I will get the software to you.
