I have a problem with one of my hard drives. It used to be my primary master but it came down with a corrupt registry so now it is slave. Now when I try to open it, I get the message: F:\ is inaccessible. Error performing inpage operation. How can I access this drive and copy the data to my other hard drive? Thanks

Start by running the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics program on the hd. Go to
http://forums.pcper....isplay.php?f=40 and see the sticky posts at the top of the forum. There are links to most hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics there.

I went to the link that you posted. My HD is seagate IDE. Will this article work for repairing my HD to recover data?

I don't know if it will or not. The link I provided has a link to seagates diagnostics. Run them to check out the drive and see what it tells you.

I forgot to paste the link for my previous post. I was asking if this would work.

I read the document at that link. It tells how to completely wipe the drive (clean format). You won't want to do that if you are trying to recover data. Run their diagnostics on the drive and see if it tells you about any problems.

Spinrite6 is also an option: http://www.grc.com/sr/spinrite.htm
There are data recover services as well, but that will cost some money. Is it worth it? Depends on how important the data is.
