My laptop up-and-died today with ~5 gigs of valuable GIS and hydrology work on it. I desperately need to recover these data. I've got the HDD in an antistatic bag next to me and I'm wondering if there isnt an adapter utility to plug the li'l SOB into a 40-pin desktop cable so I can retrieve the data?
Right now, the data are orders of magnitude more important than the machine (and cash is a limitation) so dont worry about the computer - I simply need to know how to get my LIDAR data back.
I am so seriously screwed if I can't recover this work because there is no way I can replace it in time.
anybody have any hints?
Thanks in advance
freakin' out gkd
