My daughter has an old Win 98 computer that she was trying to
get some data from. She has no backup (she's a lawyer, so I
suspect that's part of the problem) and the computer wouldn't
boot up. So I removed the HD. It's an old Seagate, 3 GB,
ST33220A. I connected it (PATA interface) and tried to read
the data, without success. Windows will see it, but won't read
anything from it and properties reports zero size. I'm hoping
that it's just the boot tracks that are messed up and that the
data on it is still OK.... but have no clue as to how to get
to the data. I'd appreciate any suggestions.
Duplicate the disk now. Never work with the source when tryingCant duplicate it if it cant read any partition info from it.
to recover data.
But of course, that depends on what "it" means.
Easus recovers them.
Bullshit. At best, that depends on the circumstance.
Before you play around, you get serious and do what you should've
done to begin with. Job one is duplicating what you have. Anybody
who knows anything about computing should know that having a
backup copy of your stuff is half of what computing is all about.
Telling someone to mess around with the data that they should have
a copy of is the blind leading the blind.
Ok, tell us
It has nothing to do with "us", it has to do with the same idiot/jerk
who says that joining an open wireless network without permission is
how he is to make a copy of a drive that is at this point ,
unreadable and partitionless?
Learn how to form a legitimate question, then do the research.
