When I boot the computer up with it attached (it was set as Primary Slave), the computer won't even boot up. It affects the C/D Drive (C and D, partioned) which it is set to be slave too.
When it has power, it makes an odd 'click click click' sound, and the computer cannot find it.
If I go into the bios and go through and select each drive, it seems to see it there, but still cannot find it on booting up.
Undid it from the system and the whole computer boots up fine.
I despretely need to save the data on this drive. Is there...
1) Any way to get this drive powered up long enough to get the stuff off it?
2) Any way, if the drive is broken, to get the data off of it?
I need to get the data off. I can't even find words to stress how important the stuff on this drive is to me. Anything anyone can suggest for saving the drive AND/OR just getting the data off would be a life saver!
PS -- I have more then enough room on the rest of the computer's drives to get the stuff from my dead E drive. Also... it was fine before I moved, and once I moved it was fine. I left my computer running that night (after rebooting it after the move) and when I woke up, the drive seemed to have died. But it DID run for MANY hours the day before!
