Hi all I recently accidently fried my pc and "C" drive too I think..... it no longer spins up! I have an intact second drive from that pc that holds ghosted copy of "C" made about 12months ago and also holds all norton backups from "C" drive.
I have new pc now a PB iMedia J2589 running vista my old pc ran XP Home. I am not an expert but dont mind messing with pc's so I'm wondering is there an easy way for me to get at those files etc on that drive? I do not have access to a second pc!!
it will mean opening up the new pc and installing albeing temporaryly the drive that is ok from the old one. Set it to slave if on ide and your new hard drive is ide if new one is sata and old one ide just set it as master ide. You should then be able to copy your data to the new drive.
If you do not want to open the new one then you will have to see if anyone in your area has a pc that they would be happy to stick your drive into and get the data off for you. That would require you to give an indication of your location. I am near Gatwick airport.
