URGENT HELP NEEDED TO RECOVER LOST DATA!!
PLEASE!! can anyone recommend the best data recovery software to help me out of a desperate situation.
I have a 500GB external hard drive which stopped working shortly after I did a clean installation of windows 7. The power light comes on and message appears “found new hardware - looking for drivers
” but no drivers are found.
I have been told by tech support that I do not need drivers for it and there must be another problem with it and to get in touch with reseller to claim warranty.
This I have done and they will refund my money if I return the hard drive.
However my main concern is recovery of the data. I really do not want to send it away for recovery because of the private nature of the data. If I have to then I will have to.
So is there any software that I can try (I am willing to pay whatever) to recover the data, bearing in mind my computer is not recognising the hardware?
