    Unsure

    I've got very important files on an hard disk,which is on a computer which doesn't wanna boot (the computer doesn't even make the sound "Beep when starting)

    When I plug this hard disk on another computer, In XP, the hard disk is present in the "my computer" folder, but if I want to acces the files , then xp tels me that that the drive isn't formated??!, so I assume it doesn't find the partition or something

    So here's my question: is there an utility, a software, which can go into this f*..k..g harddisk &rescue the files I need.

    Unless something drastic has happened to the drive, it obviously IS formatted, so something else must have changed between machines. The most likely thing is the drive characteristics set by the bios. Have a look in the bios and try a few alternatives, the most likely thing is whether it uses LBA (Logical Block Addressing) or not.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    if you moved the drive to another pc, make sure the jumper on the drive is set to slave, not slave with master present or any other crap like that, just slave.(assuming its the slave)

    the problem was that the hdd is a 160, so it wasn't recognized by my old computer duron 1g, I had to repair xp on the other computer, but I could finally recover my files, with the aid of another computer

    160 g hdd are dangerous!

    Greetings,

    I recommend you using Active@ Undelete data recovery tool to bring info back. That really helped me before and never failed. It's algorithm is powerful enought to restore literally all of mine lost data, even those I considered long unavailable.
