Currently I am trying to recover data from an old hard drive that a good friend used for a long time. Last night I installed his hard drive (OS Win. 98) in my computer (OS: XP Pro).
I went to "my computer" right clicked and went into mange. My PC is recognizing the hard drive, but there is no drive letter for my friends hard drive. Therefore I cannot do anything with the drive, and it will not allow me to assign it a drive letter either.
I was going to try to convert it from Fat32 into NTFS also, but I cannot do that without a drive letter. Basically, I have not options to do anything with the drive besides delete the partition, which I do not want to do. Are there other options to get around this problem? I'm stuck and have no idea at this point on what to do, so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
