Need Hard Drive software quickly!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi!


A friend of mine cannot see his harddrive in Windows, and therefore I need a software that would be able to access it.

Like a really "extreme" one that doesn't give a f*ck about anything, haha!


No, seriously, I need some kind of software which would be able to open it, and see, and copy/paste files from it. He suspects it's a virus.


Can you be of service?



Thanks!

two options. www.Findandmount.com (FREE and the BEST recovery software I have ever found!) and www.grc.com (SPINRITE) This will also recover lost drives, but it is more expensive. Good Luck!

The nice thing about findandmount.com is that you can create an entire image of the drive, then mount it, open it, scan it, take what you need from it, then nuke it

Download a Knoppix Live CD run it see if you can copy and paste files.

We used to do this at the computer repair shop every day.

Windows is very Picky about its file systems.

Well, the problem is that he cannot see it. I think it poppes up in BIOS, but anywhere else it isn't showing. So wouldn't that be a problem if I were to create an image of it?
