    need some help/advice

    hey guys been ages since i've browsed the great edugeek forums...anyway to the point;

    i've been using a western digi hdd in an enclosure and recently its died, i used a demo of stellar phoenix and it could see the files on there, i tried using photo rec but stopped it as it wasnt renaming files and was hoping to find another alternative, i took my hdd to a local computer sales/repair shop (not pc world) and asked if they cld do anything, now they called up today and said hdd is dead nothing we can do.

    now im puzzled cuz i've got the drive showing on my computer but just cant access the files, now does anyone know how i can retrieve those files on there as i've got uni work on there and alot of other important utilities and music etc.


    any help/opinions/advice greatly appreciated!

    any error message?

    icons not responsive to clicks?

    icons washout?

    ...

    (I'm assuming you're actually managing to get on to the drive and can see the icons etc for the files if it's showing in my computer)

    I've used some software before - think it was called drive detective or drive doctor, that was pretty good at getting stuff off borked usb pens...

    I'll see if i can find it for you
