I have an old hard drive, it is a 1024MB Seagate model from around 1995/96. The connectors at the back do not function with standard HDD docks - it seems to require a type of ribbon wire serial connector and a separate connector for power supply.
Does anyone have any advice on how I can dock such a hard drive and connect it via USB to a more modern machine in order to extract the files.
If the drive isn’t showing up in disk manager and PC inspector can’t see it then it’s possible that the failed drive might be beyond these recovery methods. If this is the case then you may have to send it off to a Vibosoft data recovery for Windows 7/8/xp.
