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.

My computer drive crashed. How can I retrieve the data?


If the operating system program was all that crashed, then yes, you may be able to recover data. If the hard drive itself failed totally, then your only possible option is to take it to a data recovery specialist. They can often recover data off these devices as they have special tools and software to do it. They are expensive, though, so unless the data you are looking to recover is very important to you, it;s probably not worth the cost.Now if the hard rive itself still runs, but just won't run Windows, you can remove the hard drive and connect to to another PC as an add-on drive and access the files that way.

what error do you get on pc startup?
Alternatively you could try getting an external casing by putting the hard drive in there and try accessing the info from there.

Crashed hard drive


Seagate File Recovery for Windows is one of the best programs I've used. I had an external drive that was totally invisible to Windows until I popped it with this stuff and was able to retrieve everything on the drive within minutes. The stuff costs $129 but is well worth it. You should download the free trial just to see if it will access your data after which you can decide if it's worth the purchase price to recover everything...

Hard disk crashed


I would use recover my files and pay the registration fee. They have an excellent product and it gets the job done 80% of the time.

When you say crash what do you mean? It's not spinning? corrupted data?

Hard drive crash


if your HD cannot be detected anymore..then there would be 90% chance that your data's cannot be retrieve. however, if it is still functional as a secondary drive but the partition is damage..try using FileScanvenger to retrieve the data.
