I need help as my computer crashed with all my data for a Medical Malpractice case on it.It crashed when I download a file from Belkin to use a transfer cable to back up my files to my deceased wifes new computer. Both are laptops. It never showed up as installed on either computers. I went to downloads a hit run it looked like it installed but never showed up in programs or add and remove. On 1st restart both computers worked but link never. Then both computers crashed. I got my wifes back by doing system restore but mine wouldn't as no restore point which there should have been. I took hard drive out of mine and put it in a case and attached it to my wife's computer and it showed all files there. I tried drag & drop 3 folders with about 70 photo's and it took over 3 hours then crashed with some pictures corrupted. Since then it says to format drive. I scanned drive with Recuva free trial and it found all but 109000 out of 750000. Need advice how to get files or is recuva the best there is.
