HOW DO I RECOVER DATA FROM A CRASHED HARD DRIVE

SITUATION...


COMPUTER CRASHED  BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.  ERROR CODE 000000C5
SOMETHING ABOUT A DRIVER, AS THOUGH NEW HARDWARE WAS RECENTLY ADDED.


EXTRACTED HARD DRIVE AND INSERTED INTO EXTERNAL CASE INEFFORT TO ROCOVER THE DATA.
CONENCTED TO ANOTHER PC VIA USB.  UPON RECOGNIZING THE DRIVE, IMMEDIATELY CAUSES THE PC TO
HAVE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH AS WELL, AND OFCOURSE RESTART.

I NEED THE DATA OUT OF THE HARD DRIVE.  IT IS GOOD, AND YES A REFORMAT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM,
BUT I NEED THE DATA OUT OF IT, AND I CANNOT CONNECT IT TO A MACHINE BECAUSE IT KEEPS CRASHING THE
MACHINES I CONNECT TO.

TRIED LINSPIRE 5 LIVE AND I CAN VIEW DATA IN THERE WITHOUT IT CRASHING DRIVE, BUT SOMETHING ABOUT PERMISSIONS WONT
LET ME COPY FILES.


IF I HAD 3 SOLID OPTIONS I WOULD BE HAPPY.

MINUS PAYING $700 for data recovery.

Boot the PC with a knoppix CD, then check if you can access the drive. If yes, copy the data to another drive or network connection using knoppix. If knoppix can't mount the drive, run hddreg on the drive, which tries to fix errors without doing any damage.

On a similar occasion I had I was unable to mount the drive in linux or windows. I opted for a windows solution which saved my bacon. You can try the demo version, which allows you to scan but not recover. If it works, you can upgrade and recover your files.

Open to opinions otherwise, but it worked for me and did the job.
http://www.quetek.com/, the software is called File Scavenger. At $50 it may be inside your budget.

good luck...

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!
