Question about Hitachi (DK23BA-20) 20 GB Hard Drive
It depends on your definition of "crashed" -- if it still spins and works, but the copy of Windows stored on the disk no longer successfully boots into Windows, that's one type of "crash",
and you can recover (by reinstalling Windows).
If it does not spin, or nothing can be read from the disk, that's another type of "crash",
and it's usually a "fatal" problem -- the hardware will never work again.
However, there exist professional "data recovery" services, that can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to _once_ read your files and copy them to a new disk-drive.
Example: http://www.seagate.com has "no-charge-if-we-cannot-recover-your-files".
