Hi.

My other halfs laptop has died. No Power when the cable is plugged in (although the power supply box is lit.). So I took the hard drive out and put it into a caddy and tried to access it from my Desktop. I can see whats on the drive but I cannot access the folder to get the documents etc off.

All this trouble started last October. First the battery died a death, we were only able to use the power cable. Then Monday night it switched itself off and on a couple of times and then Nothing.

I'm not to worried about getting the laptop up and running again as its in Bits. BUT I'd like to at least try and recover the files.. Error message when connected to my pc is '
1'\. Windows - Delayed Write Failed I X I
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file
H : \$BitMap I The data has been lost I This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection I Please try to save this file elsewhere

Clues as to how I can get at these files.

TIA D
