I donít want to tell you a story, just the point that I accidentally formatted it, but the good thing was I stopped it at the thirteen percent of the format and shut down the computer, so I think I can salvage the rest of the data.
I know I lost a lot of data.
But Iím going to use some programs to recover it.
The point of the matter is that I cannot get the 200GB hard drive to load With my 80 gig hard drive that has the windows XP operating system.
and the tools I need to recover the data.
every time I try to load the 200GB hard drive with the 80 gig with the os.
I get an error ďcannot load operating systemĒ
the 80 gig will load by itself but as I said now with the 200 gig
I tried setting the jumpers to master and slave also cable select and I even tried setting the 80 gig on the primary IDE cable And the 200 gig On the secondary IDE cable.
Butt I still Canít get it to load of with my 80 gig hard drive Which has the software I need to recover the data on my 200 gig Maxtor, without getting the error
ďcannot load operating systemĒ
I think when I formatted the hard drive it Installed windows drivers and files that are conflicting with my 80 gig hard drives loading process.
It is there any programs bootable devices That I can use To force The 200 gig hard drive to load with the 80 gig which has the recovery programs and the os.
