Re: nightmare hard drive failure all lost

sounds risky only because if i have to i will try a recovery place and don't want to do damage that would limit their chance of getting things off it. i take it the saran wrap is to keep moisture out of it. can it do any harm to the computer i stick it into? most of the files i wanna grab seem like ...

Re: nightmare hard drive failure all lost

yeah, i booted from a diagnostic disc (several different ones) and the drive was not being recognized or seen by any of the tools. there is only one drive on the computer and everything is on that, op system and all files. it is not an external drive.
