    Hey,

    yes i got your other messages, i am having a hard time finding a usb to ide adapt. I appreciate your help. If you have any other thoughts please let me know. Everyone keeps telling me that my hard drive is messed up. I hope you can prove them wrong.



    thanks

  • hello4dolly Aug 06, 2008

    Hey, I went by best buy and they suggested a rocketfish usb 2.5 hard drive enclosure kit. can i use another laptop for this or does it have to be a desktop? also do i need to remove the metal shell that covers the hard drive, it has four screws on the sides. or will that supposed to stay on?

  • hello4dolly Aug 06, 2008

    it doesnt fit and i dont want to force it. not sure what to do. there is a metal part on the outside that held the screw that sticks out. is it safe to remove the outer shell.

  • hello4dolly Aug 08, 2008

    Hey,

    it seems to be working but it is slow so im not sure if anything has actually copied b/c im to scared to stop the process. It has been running for over 24 hrs., still copying files. I hope it continues. I will let you know how it turns out. Is there any way to tell until it finnishes?

  • hello4dolly Aug 08, 2008

    your awesome! Like i said before I had my life on that computer. we are still on the same file but it was documents and settings which is alot of info and sub folders. Luckily the laptop I am using for the transfer is new and has just been cleaned. she brought her comp. to someone to repare and they lost all of her info and just cleaned up the drive. I didnt want to take that chance. they just dont have the skills u do, Lol! how do I send all of the info to a flash drive? do you think that would be the best place to put it in order to transfer back to my computer?

  • hello4dolly Aug 10, 2008

    Hey, i have tried to access the files and it says denied. what do I do now? I have also tried to copy them to a cd and that wont work. does that mean there is nothing there?

    Appreciate your faith. To be able to find where a usb to ide adapt might be available to you, may I inquire your current location pls?

    Hello Dolly,

    Thank you for the update. Yes the RocketFish would serve the purpose. It may be to your advantage to get a USB cable that looks like a Y, where one end has two USBs and the other end has only one. This is to ensure that your laptop's HD will be able to get all the power it would need.

    It does not matter whether the 2nd computer is a laptop or a desktop. The only requirement is that it has USB ports.

    There is no need to remove the metal shell as long as the connectors would fit in snugly and correctly.

    Good luck. Pls let me know how things turned up..

    Yes, it would only be a think shell held by 4 small screws. Often the inside would be covered with clear plastic.

    Hi,

    The slow performance could be attributed to the possibility that the laptop's hard disk already have errors and that the 2nd PC is having a hard time trying to fix the errors or reading the files even if with errors.

    The length of time to read/recover/copy is dependent on:


    • size of hard drive to be recovered;

    • condition of the hard drive;

    • speed/memory/capacity of the 2nd PC.
    To give you an idea, recovery on an old 80Gb HD took more than 48 hours in one of my similar work.

    Normally, there would be a message that the copy/recovery has completed.
    Your patience would be rewarded when you show your friends that it did work (the recovery) even if it was already messed up.


  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Aug 08, 2008

    and hello again,

    The flash drive would work but if I read your post right, 4 Gb or even perhaps an 8Gb might be better. Still, the best may be to burn them into a DVD (or several) and thereafter you would have a permanent backup. Should something similar happen (hope not), you need to copy/revocer only the new files since your DVD backup would still be with you presumably.

    Am happy for you.

    Hi,

    If I may, I have a favor to ask. Could you perhaps spare time to rate all my responses related to your problem. My being able to provide support is largely based on my ranking and rating on the site. These are provided by users like you who were able to resolve their concern with my assistance. Would appreciate if you could do so.
    They are:

    Again, thanks in advance.

    A possible reasons "Access Denied" in viewing the recovered/copied files is they were secured password in your original laptop. A workaround is to create a new folder in the c: of the 2nd laptop and copy the contents/files of the copied/recovered "My Documents" not the folder.

    Thanks for attending to the rating request. I send an email to FixYa requesting them to communicate to you instructions as to how to go about the rating.

    Cheers.

Shutting down incorrectly


Hit F8 while booting up then start the computer using the last known good configuration. If this helps please rate me if not let me know so I can help. mysleuth

I copied this from WinXP Help and Support you should be able to restore your system.

To start the computer using the last known good configuration
  1. Print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
note.gif Notes
  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function
