Goodday Everybody,

Can anyone advise me on this?

I installed a removable harddisk bay on one of my computer. This is the cheap one where you can just take the bay and replace the harddisk. It is not hot-swapable. Accidentally one of my customer play with the bay and remove it while the PC still running. I used different kind of utilities but I haven't read the harddisk eversince. The bios can still recognize it though.

Can I still resurrect it or let it go into the light together with my customer? /mad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mad.gif' /> /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' /> /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /> /laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' />

If the info on the HD is really needed you can send the drive to various company's that can usually recacer the data, but they can be costly depending on how much effort they have to use to recover it. Good Luck.

Try these two, I'm sure you'll get your data back. Nucleus Data recovery, and Ontrack's Data Recovery Pro, I think there's another one that works pretty well. I guess its called Get Data Back.
