i dont have thousands of dollars to send the drive to a
recovery specialist. are there any software
(free/shareware, or less expensive software to retrieve
data off a Harddrive??
Also how do i get rid of the password i had on at log-on
If the problem is software then you can put it into
another computer as a slave and copy the data that way.
If the data is destroyed so badly that you cannot read it
you will be hard pressed to find anything that will get
the data back into a readable state.
Perhaps this will help:
