I had a Samsung laptop which developed a fault and now I need to take the HDD out of that computer and retreive the data from another computer (the sasmsung is dead!).
First, I tried simply sticking the Samusung Hard drive (A) into a different laptop - didn't work - probably couldn't boot Windows cause of a Bios difference I would imagine? no expert!
I then tried buying a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor to try in my desktop computer - the Bios recvognised this on start-up, but computer management claims the disk is unallocated and not initalises???? (see attachment)
Same again when used in a caddy.
Does anyone know how I can retrieve the data from my hard drive using my other computer?
The hard drive was a single partition with OS, PRograms and files on it.
ANy help would be much appreciated.
