I encountered this message recently on my new Sony Vaio under warranty. The laptop was not recognizing the hard drive. Sony has shipped a new hard drive. A mobile tech company has represented that they can slave the old hard drive with a SATA cable and access the data because the hard drive was not damaged due to trauma the OS was merely corrupted and if it is slaved to a working OS the data will be accessible. My three questions are as follows-
1. Is this true and can I do it myself even though I am not a very good geek?
2. What sort of cable do I buy to slave it up to the new working laptop?
3. Is Pc Decrapifier the best utility to clean a fresh computer?
