The hard drive in my Thinkpad X220 crashed Monday night. It kept booting to a screen with a life preserver. I tried running Windows Repair booting from a Win7 CD but that did not work. I booted from a Lenovo utilities CD and started a scan & recover of the hard drive. It ran over 12 hours and was only 1% complete. It's only a 320 gig HD. I stopped the scan and saw that it was going through sectors and repairing them but at that rate, it will be a month before it's done. So I switched directions to just trying to salvage the data off the drive. It's a SATA drive, and I unplugged my CD-RW in my Dell and plugged the drive in. It does show up correctly in the BIOS. However it does not show in Disk Management or in Device Manager. I tried the SATA2 and SATA3 ports. I have Acronis Drive Monitor and Get Data Back Simple and neither of those see the drive either of course since Windows isn't seeing it. Is there anything I can do to access the drive to try to retrieve data? Thank you.
