Hi
there r many ways u can retrieve ur data.

1) copy ur imp files on to some usb drive or CDs
2) copy ur imp docs on some other HDD.
3)copy ur imp docs on the same HDD u r using but on adiffferent partition.(If u dont hav ny partition then i would suggest u go for it this time.
It not only serves as a extra virtual HDD but also will increase ur booting speed.

The computer hard drive has broken, not alot you can do about this any attemp to format will fail and partition too will fail, you can remove the hard drive from your computer and plug it into an external hard drive caddy and then plugging it into your system via the USB port on it, depends on how badly it is damage you might be able to retrieve some data if not all but please be aware if it is badly damage it might not work at all,

Is there any way to retrieve a password if you dont have the reset disk and not loose all information on hard drive


You can back up the data by moving the hard disk to another computer if you don't meet any permission messages when doing so. Or if your data is not on the system partition, you may try reinstalling without re-partition and format anything - install it on the original system drive such as C: drive.

You maybe able to retrieve data from this hard drive by connecting it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If the hard drive is OK then this computer will see the adapter as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files and copy them to the computer's hard drive or to a USB flash drive.

Dont want to format my flash drive


Sounds like all the connections are not . . connecting.

If the computer recognized the device but can't get the directory structure, it will ASSUME it's not formatted and suggest a format.

Check the connections to be shure the drive is fully inserted in the USB port, and that the connector is fully extended, and free of any obstacles.

Hope this helps.

Hello,
You can try a software recovery program such as this one:
http://www.download.com/VirtualLab-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-10610841.html?cdlPid=10801131
Of course there is no guarantee that you will retrieve your files. Also be prepare to retrieve files that are corrupted. I wish you the best of luck.

External hard drive -help please?


Hi

Have you checked it on other pc ? If yes then your hard disk is corrupted you lost partition information but dont worry u can retrieve your data by getbackdata for NTSF. Its able to retrieve about 98% of data or other is Acronis Disc Direct Suite, the same reliable and really working tool to restore information. It really restored ALL files in lost partition
After using these tools just format your hardisk and it will work dont worry
