Hey tomcruise3230

How's Kaite ? :tazz: ;)

Listen.. I think that no harm can be done if your connect the failing HD as salve to your computer.
Just be sure that you don't have any virus onit.

The worse thing that could happen is that you won't be able to access this HD.

Good Luck

I don't know any software that can access failing HD.

Only big companyes can take your HD and recover your data, but that's will cost
you a lot...

Sorry
