This all started wiht a rootkit virus, got a new hard drive, reloading everything.
Now i have the old C and F drive, both sata. Got bitdefender running and comodo firewall, now.
Win7 system, using USB connection(safer then direct connect sata, i think) C - not trying yet. F - treid it but it is coming up as file system RAW. Can't access the data on it. Tried Convert F: fs:ntfs, no luck
On my old system(XP finally got to boot up) C - it did read this one, but the drive sounded like it was trying to boot, which is fine on that system, old and corrupt anyway. F - did the same, Not Accessible.
I guess i have a couple of options. F - is gone forever F - hook up as it was before to sata connection, (not sure if it was corrupted by virus, and if it is will it infect the new system) C - try hooking up c thru USB and hope it does not infect, this drive has some of the data i need on it. I was copying it off to F hoping to just clean and get the data off of it, sine C's MBR is currupted.
Any suggestions or ideas? Would it be safe to reconnect F back to the sata connection(not the USB one)?
