dead hard drive, best way to recover?
Posted on 2006-05-27
I have a 40 gig hard drive, that was formatted with ntfs and had a bunch of stuff on it. recently i did something and it is more or less dead. the computer will not boot off the hard drive. so i put the hard drive in another computer (windows xp) and it said the hard drive is not formatted and asked to format it. i said no, because i don't know if there is any way to recover. is there a free way to recover my files? either with linux or a program in windows, or something. or is the data just all gone?
