Try a program called r-studio ntfs and install this on a spare pc running xp and place the drive in question in this pc on a spare ribbon cable and have the jumpers set on master boot up pc look to see if it is being reconised in bois boot screen then if it is run program r-studio let it find all drives then select which drive to recover from then press scan on drive then let it scan the drive It'll take some time to scan drive and make sure you have enough disk space for files to recovey to.

good luck with this.

Windows xp not recognize external hard drives


If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software.I had succeed with Tenorshare data recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack etc.
You can download it and scan your external hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm After you recover your data,you can format it to get it fixed.

Unable to read data on drive


Hi Franoisebis,

I can help you with that, you will need a data recovery pro to attempt to retrieve your data. Unfortunately Geek Squad really isn't equipped to do that. If you reply with your Country, State and City I will direct you to an appropriate Pro nearest your location.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered

MY HARD DRIVE IS NOT DOWNLOADING WHEN CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTER


Clicking coming from the hard drive normally indicates that the drive has failed. Unfortunately, you will need to purchase a new hard drive, unless the warranty on your hard drive is longer than 3 years. Your data can be recovered. I know the best buy geek squad can have the hard drive sent out for data recovery, however the cost for data recovery is quite expensive.

Hard drive recovery, hard drive is damaged


My brother's MacBook Pro had a similar issue a few years ago. In his case the issue started when he attempted to update the OS to the then most recent version. The update failed with an error saying that the Hard Disk needed to be repaired and instructing him to restart in Recovery Mode and repair the disk. When he did this the "Repair Disk" option was grayed out as you said. From my searches then it seems that the drive entered a "write-locked" state that prevented it from mounting. I was able to recover his files and restore the computer to working order. You will need another computer that has enough free space to hold the files you want to save, and the appropriate cable to connect the misbehaving computer to the working computer.
This procedure requires booting in Recovery Mode and erasing the non-working computer's hard drive, reformatting it, and restoring the system.
1. Turn on the working computer.
2. Make sure the non-working computer is turned off, connect the two computers using the appropriate cable (FireWire or Thunderbolt)
3. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "T" key to enter Target Disk Mode. (This worked in the case of my brother's computer, but I can't guarantee that this will work in your case, but if you could get it into Verbose mode I would think you should be able to get into Target Disk Mode.)
4. The non-working computer's hard drive icon should appear on the working computer's desktop. You may get a message that you cannot alter the contents of the external drive (non-working computer), but you will be able to transfer files from the non-working machine to the working one.
NOTE: You could connect a dedicated external drive to the working computer and transfer files from the non-working computer to the external drive using the working computer as an intermediary of sorts.
5. Transfer the files you wish to save. We will be erasing the non-working computer's drive and restoring the system so be certain you have what you need transferred before you get to that step.
6. Once you have saved all of the files you need to save, you can eject the non-working computer's hard drive, and turn off the non-working computer.
7. If possible connect the computer to the internet, if not possible you can use wi-fi, but it may take longer.
8. Connect the non-working computer to the drive with your most recent backup.
8. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "Command+R" keys.
9. Once the computer is in Recovery Mode choose the option to Restore From Backup
10. You will then be asked to choose which backup to use, and then click "Restore". Once this process is done you should be able to boot the system. You can then transfer the files you saved to the other computer or external hard drive back to the restored computer.
