Hey guys,
I have been given the task of attempting to recover some data from a hard drive. This is what I know:

-The hd failed the READ test, READ VERIFY test, and Internal Cache test.

-When I plug it in using IDE cables, or using a IDE->USB external case it shows up as explorable.

-Typical directories like Program Files, WINDOWS, etc. show up but ONLY as unknown files

Any ideas?

Thanks PO

Two monthes ago I bought Advanced File Recovery when I deleted very important files from my PC. And this tool helped me to rescue all information. As i know this program can work with different media types.

Hi, please try Data Recovery Wizard to recover it.

But note whatever software you will use, please don't do any change (rewrite/reformat/delete) or install the software on the drive which you are going to recover data from.
