I am trying to help a friend who has a 98 installation drive but will not boot, he need all the pictures and documents so he can install them in his window 7. will i be able to install win 98 on the drive and use esus file recovery system to locate the lost files? is there a way around this?
my immediate thought was to borrow a usb 2.0 external caddy (for an ide drive)and see if the windows 7 computer will recognise the drive via usb, and the documents in it. obviously if it is the drive that is dead it wouldn't be recognised. As for recovery software I'm afraid I haven't used esus but I guess you could try. Hopefully others will chip in and maybe recommend software if it becomes necessary.
