If you have another harddisk or somewhere to transfer your data over, you can try easy recovery pro

Stor,

Buy an external casing, put your crashed harddisk into the external casing, attach it to another computer and try to run the program kei suggested.

If you have the money to spend, you may approach iBas Singapore for data recovery. Not too sure of the charge...onie if your data is really impt.

Erwin and Mirage. Thank you for your input. I tried a shop in Sim Lim and they wanted to charge $1500 for retrieving of datas. :bigeyes: Thus, I think I have to learn this lesson of not backing up my data promptly.

Hi Kei

Thanks for the info. It cannot work as my hardisk really crashed and cannot even boot up.

BTW, for zodnm post, what is raid rule :dunno:
er, raid means redundant array of inexpensive/indepedent drive
basically a collection of hdd for performance gain or for backup, depending on how you configure it

1 of the ways to recover data on hdd is to put it inside the freezer
after some time, take it out and quickly connect to ur comp and boot up. if the data is accessuble, quickly copy them out. this method can only be used once or twice before the hdd fails completely

highly unnecessary, just need to plug it into another system which already has a HDD in place, and try to run a recovery software from there.

of course if your HDD can't even be detected in BIOS in the first place, chances are that the electronics in the HDD has died, and no recovery software is going to help you in that scenario.
