I have been a member on here for quite a long time now and i have recently been stumped with what to do next with my remobable hard drive as i have tried so many things and i thought id ask the experts!
basically i have a freecom " classic Mobile HD 2.5" 40GB hardrive and a while ago it started freezing up my computer when i plugged it in (even if i tried different desktop computers, laptops etc), the next stage in it annoying me was when it stopped showing up in my computer or anywhere else (including Computer Management>System Tools>Device Manager) i have tried so so many different things to get this to work but have come to no luck!
I dont really care if the hardrive never works again, if i have to take it apart or anything like that as long as i can get the data of it as i have some important work on there!
I tried downloading certain programs that extract the data, they worked and extraceted alot of the drive but it didnt seem to extract the .doc files or any pictures or things like that which are what i need. (all it extracted were random files which i believe to be some kinds of system files *not too sure though but they were unreadble files*).
I am currently studying Computing and Advanced Computing at A level along with many other computer based courses and i got high grades in my GCSE's (im not sure if you have GCSE's or A levels in america so sorry if im talking rubbish) so i know what i am doing on a computer!
PLEASE try and help me, even any suggestions will be of great importance to me because i really need this work!
Thanks in advance for your time and i am sure you'll do your best to help me out!
