How to determine is data is accessable?
Posted on 2004-10-03
Win 2K Pro OS. Started PC and got error that files were missing/corrupt in Winnt/system dir, and drive wouldn't boot.
Tried using ERD and some sound files were missing, and still no access to drive. Tried to re-install OS fromCD, but it wouldnt do it without re partitioning/reformatting, and or overwriting MyDococuments, etc... I also tried adjusting drive jumpers as slave, and tried accessing drive in another system. Bios saw it, but WIN 98 didn't see it at all. Is their anything to try first before considering exspensive data recovery? Any solid helpwouild be greatly appreciated as there is very imp data/files on this drive.
I do not care about the drive as much asthe data.
Thanks in advance.
