Is there a way to recover data from a hard drive when it's not detected anymore by the PC?
I've looked around and all the solutions seem to assume that the hard drive is still detectable.
How can I do this?
Sometimes deepfreezing it will allow bits to move back into place for long enough to get data off.
A quick google search provides the follow:
It's also possible to find software that will take a dead 'as in non-detecable' harddrive and do a slow deep level scan of the drive and recover data from it.
If it doesn't spin up, it's time for the professionals. They will need a clean room to open it up.
