I have a probolem that has come up before but not with a definitive answer. I've removed the drive and disconnected the two wires, thinking I was going to try and buy a case and see if I could access the drive this way? Then someone advised to try Ubutnu and reimage repair (which I havent tried).
I've tried Ubutnu but as far as I can see nothing is detecting my hard drive. Like the other post I saw I have photographs on I would really like to try and recover. Surely there is a way someone clever knows (after all the forensics can find allsorts thesedays!)
I was in the process of having bought an external hard drive copying all the files over and only got to 'M' as the drive showed a disc error, unrecoverable ..... Photos under 'P' Ha, (the pc must have known I was superceeding it with a laptop and back up drive!
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance with my fingers, legs and eyes crossed !
