submitted a post last week regarding getting data from my old hdd. Have recently installed a 120gig hdd to suplement my original 40gig drive.
Had some problems setting it all up and getting the drives assinged letters, but at the end of the day the disk management was telling me that there was 100% free space on the old drive ??? impossible. wasnt formatted, nothing was deleted or anything. Now all i want to recover is my music files (15 gb total), not too woried about anything else on there, but a good 10 gb of that music will take me months to replace. tried using runtime getdataback programe , but found it very difficult to use, wasnt very user freindly and after 24 hours of recovering data, displayed only 5 music tracks and lots of other files i couldnt honestly find any assosciation with. I know the music is still on the drive somewhere, but i just cant get the computer to recognise its data. I have even tried just booting up with the old drive, but just get boot up errors ( just to complicate things more )
I am learning all the time, and have learned how to do, and how not to do things , mainly by trail and error (with forum advice) , but i need some serious help on this one. any good advice will be taken on board and put to good use. many thanks, RX KEV.
