But you write it stopped working. As in spinning? If so, I've yet to find a software to deal with that. We send it off to drivesavers.com
Any suggestions on some data recovery software? My hard drive stopped working overnight, after 2-3 years, I have most of the data backed up but not all. Sometimes it appears in windows explorer but will not allow me to repair or access the files so I can copy them.
I've have knoppix but was not sure what software to use once I booted into it. When I try to mount the drive it says unable to mount.
I've tried spinrite but get an overflow error

I took it out of the case and if needed I can plug it into my desktop and copy over the files that way, no usb needed
