    Data recovery help needed for flashtrax portable hard drive

    I was upgrading my system with new windows Vista which causes loss of my data. Don’t get surprised now I need help recovering a few days worth of photos in Barcelona off my 20 GB flashtrax, it is essentially a 20gb portable usb2.0 hard drive with a CF card reader, it acts as a portable hard drive, so I imagine any data recovery tools that would work for portable hard drives would work for this, but I'm having trouble finding anything at this point.
    I'm on my friend's 15" power book at a star bucks, and would have to run any data recovery off this computer, so far all I've seen is for pc, if it has to be from a pc i can arrange that.
    Is this doable?
    Please help!?!?!?
    Thanks in advance

    WHat kind of data loss have you suffered is the first and most important question.

    Does the drive sound ok, no new clicking or scratching etc that might hint at a hardware failure?

    Secondly is the USB HD blank as in no folders when you open it but it does open, blank as in windows asks you to partition / format / or initialize is when you plug it in, or is it not detected by windows at all?

    Depending on which of these your dealing with you need very different tools for the job.

    Also be aware data recovery tools take TIME 1hour to several days depending what kind of data loss you've suffered so starbucks probably isn't the best place to be for this.

    Re: Data recovery help needed for flashtrax portable........

    I Found and used this programs the other day and it worked well. It's a small very easy to use application called Salvage Recovery™ for Windows and is easy to use. I just had to recover the deleted file to a different drive to keep from overwriting, etc.

    You can find it easily if you just run a search in google for: Salvage Data Recovery Lab Inc.

    From the fact you say powerbook am i to assume that it is HFS formatted? in which case you will need MacDrive to mount the drive in windows. R-Studio or winhex will work if the data is ok, or getdataback with a raw scan to get some of the raw data.
