A friend brought over a hard drive from a damaged laptop. I put it in an enclosure and connected it to my computer. The drive spins up but is not recognized by Windows. Disk Management sees the partition and says it is not initialized, but when I tell it to initialize it, it says "the device is not ready".
MiniTool Power Data Recovery, in its Recover Partition function, simply does not see the drive.
Any ideas what else I might try?
