Hard drive failure, need help
ok, so i have my computer with 2 harddrives. (both 120 gig maxtors 7200 rpms)
my c drive has my os and programs installed (master)
my d drive was for music, movies and downloads (slave)
i had a lot a valuable things on my d drive like 40 gigs of music, 25 gigs of top gear episodes and believe it or not but i was actually in the middle of backing up everything to my xbox over ftp.
an error pops up "no data found" i hit ok.. the computer froze. i restarted. everything was acting ok on restart. i try again, same thing but this time the "no data found" error pops up immediately. on next restart the D drive said: "this drive has not been formatted yet, would you like to format it now"
so now im freaked out. either this hard drive is completely crashed or the file system is corrupted. is there anything i can try to get my data off? i could put it in another computer as slave, but thats actually the config its in right now in this computer so i dont think that will do any good.
i just want in to the drive 1 last time, back up my info and im good.
