The usual recovery involves putting the drives in new enclosures and if the file system is corrupt you see people using Zero Assumption Recovery and GETDATABACK.
But where is the backup of these files or drives?
Please help. I am running XP on a 4 year old Dell. I have two external hard drives, a maxtor and a seagate. We have had multiple power outages with thunderstorms this spring. I know we took several lighting strikes since we twice lost the electronics in the refrigerator. The computer was on a surge protector and did not appear to be effected. After this last storm, however, neither of the external hard drives works. The Maxtor does not show as an available drive, nothing. The Seagate shows as an available drive but none of the files show and you cannot save to it. Is there any recovery from this? Thanks, Joe
