ntfs problem...

Hi all..

I have two harddiscs which is formatted in NTFS... One of them is infected by a virus so i cant use it but i have to backup the data too...

so i am using the other harddisc to run my pc.. but i cant enter the infected harddisc.. it always prompts me to "format this drive" but if i format it i will lose all the data..

so anyone can tell me what to do???
I really need the data....

  1. The easiest way is to set the infected drive as 'Slave' and set 'Master' as a small leftover hard drive, doesn't matter what size, so long as you can install Windows. Anyway, boot off that, and use it as a platform for data recovery.
  2. Thanks to everyone who helped me... the source of the problem was jumper setting...
