Had a corrupted SATA HD, removed it from machine and using a little enclosure connected it to a good PC. There's several gig of stuff on there but can't access it.

Can you recommend any suitable software?

EaseUS any good?

It depends how it has failed. Does it get recognised in the BIOS on the machine?

It was pulled out of a machine that would no longer boot up windows 7. Despite my best efforts with recovery disks, repair options etc I couldn't get the pipper to start windows. I assumed part of the HD had become corrupted.

If I connect this extracted HDD via the USB Sata enclosure thingy, I can open the drive and look but the contents appears to be just a "recovery" file of unknown extension and a few tiny XML docs. If I got disk properties it's showing 8 gig of files with 7gig free.

Someone recommended "GetDataBack" so might try that.

Edit - tried that GetDataBack, it's absolutely brilliant! Problem solved, got all the required data from the drive.
