Has anyone had experience with the recovery software available from click here
I have removed a Seagate Barracuda 80 Gb SATA drive from my grandchildrens computer which was failing to boot. Trying a repair with the supplied OEM XP2 disc brought up this message: The partition is either too full, damaged, not formatted, or formatted with an incompatible file system. To continue installing Windows, setup must format this partition.
Accessing this drive through a SATA to USB2 external enclosure revealed a RAW disc with no data! Needless to say, no backup was made.
Using woodchip's CampicRestor I have succeeded in recovering over 100 photographs from this RAW disc. I do not intend to format this disc in the near future in case another recovery piece of software becomes available.
In the meanwhile I should like to thank woodchip for his assistance.
