Your files may still be on the hard drive so do not throw it away!!!.

There is a cheap device you use to slave your old hard drive to a new comp.

I have had this happen a couple times where I fucked up my windows operating system a couple times and was told the drive is useless and all the files were gone. After being ripped off for 400 dollars from a guy who was supposed to recover them another guy who works at a computer store told me about this device http://www.imicro.com/item.php?item=IMBS35G-BK

This solved my problem, I hooked it up with my old had drive and plugged it into my new comp and all the files that were supposed to irretrievable were right there ready to use.

you use the connectors it comes with and then you can slide into the case which is shown in the picture. The USB hook up is easy.

I'm telling you just because your drive wont spin up doesnt mean the files arent on there. for a lousy 30 bucks you might be able save all your stuff just like I did. I was also told my drives were dead and they wouldn't start either because the MTF header or something is missing so windows wont start It just keeps shutting off before anything can happen but with that device they started right up and I got all my stuff back.

good luck.

BTW I highly doubt you would be banned from this site. There a plenty of people who shitty rats and they have been here for years.

Re: Catch up

hello to all

even put the hhd in freezer for 24hours,told that works some times,no luck.
Hired some guy that looked like a witchdoctor and he danced around it and chanted something around it,still nothing.

Re: Catch up

Don't know what software you tried. I used Recuva once to salvage some files. Might be worth a shot if you have not tried it already.

I don't know anything about drives, but I can tell you that we don't ban for bad ratios. We encourage everyone to do whatever they can to help others on the site, whether that is having a good ratio, doing some B&Ps, creating some covers, or donating to the server costs.
