i posted my problem (below) in the hardware section. not much feedback there, so maybe i can go a different route. the main goal is to get the data off the hard drive.

thanks,
jl2


my friend had a bad motherboard, i took hard drive out of that computer & installed as slave drive in another computer (important data on this drive). Everything was fine, master dive was "C", CD Rom Drive was "D" & slave drive was "E". We opened up "E" drive & saw data. My friend takes computer home & formats "C" drive & installs XP Pro (it had XP Home) & against my advice loaded Symantic's "Go Back" software. Some how when he did all these things "My Computer" lost "E" drive. He brought it back to me & i checked it out. CMOS sees slave drive, Disk manager sees slave drive as healthy & active but did not assign it a drive letter & the option to change drive letter is faded out. I took slave drive out & installed in my computer to check it (which my computer has a functioning slave drive in, but i swapped them for test) & got excatly same results as in his computer. As i said before, my friend has important data on this drive which we now can not access. any suggestions?

thanks,
jl2

These look like they could be helpful utilities. Now one they are free, two I have never personally used these two tools but I use the site for many other free utilities. I will vouch for the site overall. I cant really help you much farther. Let me know if these help.

Good Luck!
