Bad drive...data recovery possible? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
When I said screwed it up I was referring to formatting it before trying to recover the data, not what happened to it originally. Formatting it will be more of a hindrance to recovering the data than what happened to it originally.

It was already mentioned, live boot a linux distro. Knoppix is pretty straight forward.

File Recovery For Windows (Seagate) is the BEST utility i have used at a fraction of the cost that more expensive data recovery suites built on linux use.

Kremtok I should have also added that File Recovery for Windows (Seagate) has a limited version and a paid version with no limitations.

The full version is worth every penny. I am not a fan of Seagate however

Make ABSOLUTELY SURE you save a scan log or you may be forced to rescan. Scans take a very long time.

First. 7200.11's were notorious for firmware failure.

You need to check your bios and make sure the drive is being recognized in there or not.
If it is, then boot it in another computer and check the drive firmware version (it may also be written on the drive) and see if it's an afflicted version http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/cr...p?DocId=207951

There are more than are listed at that link though, if it's a 7200.11 and it's not on sd1a firmware then you can pretty much bet on it.

If it's recognized update the firmware asap.
Only then should you start looking at other issues.

If it's not recognized you need to go through the reset procedure here. http://www.overclock.net/hard-drives...-fix-pics.html

Lastly, your data recovery programs might be failing because of bad sectors. You can lock them out with chkdsk or a more advanced program. If the head crashes you can be sure you'll end up with a stripped platter. (If you can't tell, I do a lot of data recovery.)
