Thanks for the link Noel to your one drive and fevzk if for any reason the drive should fail - hope it doesn't of course then to retrieve data you can use my little ditty to get most of it back - there is a Linux Mint method but I find this on easier - for me that is.


Make a bootable Ubuntu disk

Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when themachine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL >select TRY not INSTALL

When it is finished - it takes very little time youwill get a screen like in the pic .

Open the drive you want > User and dig downuntil you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste thematerial you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.

I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tonsof data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drivesthat you cannot get data from using Windows.
