Look up how to make a KNOPPIX CD, boot that and see if the old files are visible. If so, read http://tips.oncomputers.info/archives2004/0401/2004-Jan-11.htm for ideas how to get the data out.
Operating system- Computer-WIN XP PRO
HD OpSys-WIN XP PRO
Pentium 4, 3.00GHz, 512MB of RAM
Okay bare with me ...first time writing on a message board.
Old comp crashed, Mother board crapped out. Removed HD to place as a secondary in new system to extract info and put into new comp and new HD. Everything is set correctly (ie:jumpers ribbon power) Properly installed as a secondry to New HD. Now in comp management I can see it but I cannot acess it asks me to format drive. Now as I stated above same Op Sys Win XP PRO.
Is there anything else i can try to extract the info of this drive...as it is for a small buissness and was not backed up. Anything...I will try it.
