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.

How to reformat


I think you mean just format the hard drive if so insert your windows installation disk then select drive options and format the drive then install windows again. Formatting the drive will delete everything so if this isnt what you want dont do it. Hope this helps

Want to get rid of an old computer Should I take out hard drive


Hi,
Best thing to do is download the contents of the hard drive to a external hard drive or Memory stick. If the computer is more then 5 years old then the hard drive will be old type, and will not go into the newer PC.

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.

I've actually had a Hard Drive running with a missing pin. However, somewhere along the line it will give blue screen errors, but atleast may give you enought time to get what you can off it.

I bought a phillips portable hard disk drive and i need to format it for my Samsung tv. Can this be done.


All disks can be formatted or Erased, what you need is the Software to do it. I found Acronis to be the best software for this job, you just insert the disk and follow the instructions. But be careful, once formatted you can not retrieve any info back, and it also formats your Boot to where you have no system at all installed. You will then have to insert a system disk of your choice and install it to your new clean drive. Good Luck.
