I have a client that had a dell dimension 9200 and the motherboard failed. Is there anyway to recover the data from the drives (other than a data recovery company that wants gobs of money)? I have purchased a new inspiron for him and reinstalled windows professional and restored his files from backup (unfortunately he was not checking backup and the last good one was from August). I have tried installing just one of the drives on a windows 7 machine, but one drive showed up as unformatted and the other the system wants to initialize and I am reluctant to risk losing the data.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
