    Default data recovery

    I've got an IDE 20gig drive from a work computer that for some reason went faulty today.

    When trying to explore the drive i get "this drive is not formatted"

    Is there any hope of getting a load of office files off this drive? (they are all on paper in a cabinet but it would be days of work to re-do this)

    IMHO it sounds like bad MBR . You can use a tool called Gparted ( it helped me wheni screw up my disk with partition manager). You have to run a tool named disk test in there and it should show you what you have on that disk . Good luck

    SPINRITE. Crazy little app that was written by a genius. Helps stabilise your drive enough to get the data off.

    HEHE.....touche. Free is good! Hey, as long as something works I'm for any option. I've lost stuff off hard drives. I've literally fried a couple in my day and had others fail. I'm paranoid about losing data, so I have 6 drivers operating in various capacities. Paranoid, I know.......but I'd rather be safe than sorry

    I'm not going to join THAT discussion

    Suffice to say PROBLEM SOLVED......I let it run overnight put it back in the machine this morning and all working 1st time!!!

    Still don't know what the problem was but frankly...who cares

    I've got an old drive or two in the cupboard which I saved rather than throw away ....It will be interesting to see what I can do with/find on those

    I know this sounds strange, but this happened to me last year and an IT friend of mine told me to put the drive in the freezer for a little while. I have no idea what that does, but it fixed it long enough for me to get all the information off of it before it officially crashed.
