Question about Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook
Can you retrieve anything when your hard drive crashes
Possibly. It depends on the crash. If the drive won't spin at all, then there is one way, but it will have to be sent off and it's expensive. If the drive still seemingly works (spins and tries to read), then it has a bad sector and some of the info, that is not effected by the bad sector can be retrieved. You can do this yourself by purchasing an IDE to USB, or SATA to USB hard drive connection cable, depending on the type of hard drive that's in your machine. Sometimes you can find them at Bestbuy for around $15, make sure it's for laptop and not desktop. This cable allows you to hook any laptop IDE /SATA hard drive to your machine as an external and read it or use it for extra or backup storage.
