my drive is failing and at the moment failed, i can't access it though windows and bio's still see it. have been trying to access the drive to retrieve all my data with no luck.
does anyone know of a sure try at accessing the drive, it still running but can't see any sizes looks empty but i know better. it has bad sectors on it and getting the files off of it is extremely important and i can't afford the recovery services route.
am running windows xp sp2
2 sata 500gb hard drives 1x western digital which is failed and a seagate which is partitioned
any help would be greatly appreciated i'm in tears trying to figure this out.
It is free for download and it is a demo. It will scan and find your files before the pay. Actually to my point of view, never pay before the program really locates your files.
I know some guys can register it with free code by searching the internet. You can access one if you do not want to pay.
My experience and recommend: never touch the drive where you want to restore files. Or according to most experts, it may cause permernant data loss.
i'll try it, thanks for the information. i really need something that can access the drive itself, i'm waiting on a sata to usb converter i heard that this is a good way to access the files. hopefully it works and i'll try the icare program too.
