After a windows crash a friends hard-drive starts saying "no operating system found", he had hard-drive issues for a while now, and I instructed him to buy a new one. Now I want to recover his data.
But before using my usual recovery tools I would like to make a byte by byte image of that hard-drive, so I could restore it if something goes wrong.
Some hdd imaging tools I've tried can only do this if the hdd shows up with a letter aka gets mounted.
P.S. I'm running Windows 7 x64 ...
