I am pretty computer savvy and I would like to try to retrieve data from a HDD. The MB of the old system was hit by lightning.
My thoughts on the recovery process are as follows:
If the HDD in question is an IDE drive, I could connect it to an existing MB to see if the OS will be detected. If it is, retrieve what data I have and I will be all set.
- What are my options if the BIOS does not see the HDD?
- If the drive is SATA and all I have are IDE connections, is there a work around this?
Thanks for your input.
