I have a Maxtor Hard Drive that does not work when I get into BIOS. BIOS could not be passed because it cannot recognize the hard drive. The bad thing is that I have my project summative in that hard drive and its VERY important because its due on Monday may 26th, or I fail the course.
I do have a seperate hard drive that contains WINDOWS VISTA installed so I could go through there. However, is there a way for me to at least access the other hard drive by going through BIOS and running a disk recovery program on Vista?
PLEASE PLEASE HELP.
UPDATE: Ok, so heres the situation so far.
I was able to scan out the files that were formatted. When I tried to recover them using Handy Recovery 3.0, all I get are empty files that STILL have the right size, but a corrupted file. for example, for my images, after i restored some photos, all of them still have the right size, but windows xp cannot generate a preview image, or view it at all. for documents, the stuff that are recovered appear in weird ANSI coding, not exactly what I want.
Any help and suggestions why this is happening? and any suggestions on another software?
