Lost files when changing hard drive to new pc

  ladykara 19:46 02 Feb 2005

I had a storage hard drive ( slave) and when i brought a new pc i was told i could not add a slave drive so got a usb hard drive case to be able to retrive the files. It seems to take ages to see the files but i have noticed that i have lost a lot of my files and folders. I put the hard drive as a slave drive on a other PC and still the same problem.Have i lost them all forever? please say some how some where i can get them back ? thank you in advance for any help.

i'm assuming you can't add the drive as a slave because either there is already a slave, or it is a prebuilt machine, and removing the case voids the warranty?

have you tried the drive back in your old computer again?

any chance that you physically damaged the drive whilst making the change (putting it down on a carpet or something?)
