Recover Photos From storage drive

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So...
i dislike xp more and more i think about it specially older systems...

So i have xp on this older machine of mine...
i took out the storage (f3 samsung) which is only used for pics nothing else...has a ton of them on it

now i go to reinstall xp on this system with out the samsung drive connected..
xp boots up and well...then put the samsung drive back on the computer....
Now boot up and No show of the F3 Samsung drive
It has a lot of my photos

Although i did try Knopix (linux based recovery) and it it booted up saw the samsung drive no problem
had connected external drive and started to put all the pics from the samsung on the external drive...


NOW i want to mess with my pics on windows side...
so i plug the external in and see that it shows up but my pics are not there...
nor does it show my samsung drive...

What is a good program?
I saw recuva is a descent one that people all over are saying but will it save all my pics from my samsung to an external so i can at least view all the pics i have on the drive...Lot of time spent taking those pics ( have 750 GB worth) and i really dont want to loose these at all


Recuva (not tested yet)
Knopix( did not work apparently)
Any other suggestions that i might be able to try ??

Maybe use:
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
A bit advanced but has also advanced features.
But how is this external drive formatted? If it is ext2 or such you won`t be able to get this thing working with windows. Or maybe the hidden flag is check so you just can`t see them?
If you copied the files to the external drive they can`t be "deleted" and because of that you can`t recover them.
