I have 3 external hard drives that have stopped working (a 4 yr old 250gb WD, a 2yr old 500GB WD My Book that backed up the 250GB, and a 1yr old 1TB Cavalry that backed up everything). I would like to try and pull the drives out and recover as much data as possible. I know Spinrite can sometimes recover data off of failed drives, but I only have laptops and don't have a desktop to plug the drives into directly. Will it work with something like a Thermaltake BlacX Docking Station or Newertech USB Universal Drive Adapter that plugs into USB. I think that I read that Spinrie runs under DOS, so how could it access a USB external device? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
