Question about PC Desktops
First be sure the drive is a vaible drive.....meaning it should be in it;s originbal PC it came out of and able to boot up on the installed OS. If it can then you are in luck..... install the drive you want to copy to as a slave and use a program like DriveCopy or Norton Ghost to copy the entire drive.....or if you are just after select files, you can use the copy/paste method to the drive. By trying yo use the drive in a different PC it will not boot since it has the other PC's drivers on it =( If the drive will not detect in it's native machine then most likely the drive is lost (unless you pay to clean room recover the contents....spendy!) Let mem know if you need more help!

TestDisk is a powerful open-source tool for recovering your data.
Not only can TestDisk perform basic file recovery like undeleting accidentally deleted files from FAT, NTFS, and ext2 file systems, but it comes with a host of additional functionality.
With TestDisk you can recover your boot sector from a backup, rebuild your boot sector, fix FAT tables, fix your MFT, locate the ext2/ext3 backup SuperBlock, copy deleted files from partitions to recovery media, and find lost partitions in dozens of formats to help you locate your lost data.

It comes with a very intuitive interface which is suitable for all users.
It has recovered 1GB in 85 seconds and managed to recover all 106 files after the disk was formatted.
Help files are very good explaining most of the recovery methods step by step. A must have for any computer.
