Harddrive failure

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
Hello Experts,

I have a Toshiba hard drive from a Dell laptop.  I have the hard drive outside of the laptop and am trying to rescue data.  I have tried hooking it up to a usb 2 sata cable connector and getting data.

Disk Manager won't hook up to it.

Any tricks out there that I might be able to recover data?
