    What seems to the problem with the disk?

    Depending on the answer to that question, any one of these solutions could work:

    1.  Put the drive into another NT/2K/XP/2K3 system and access it as a slave
    2.  Install Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3 to a parallel location a boot the disk that way
    3.  Use software, such as that sold by ONTRACK - - to recover partitions and/or deleted files.
    4.  Send the drive to an expensive data recovery agency if it has serious phycial problems and your system won't read it at all.

    here a list of recovery softwares, in most cases you can try the free download; and if you see your files, the program should be able to recover them, so buy it                                    ontrack                  Easy Recovery                                    GetDataBack                                    Restorer 2000                        Restoration                        Active undelete
