  1. Hi people, I have a computer that was working very well, but lately whe
    I was working on a important project, there was a power fluctuation fo
    a couple of times (I thought that was normal) but after the last powe
    fluctuation my computer refused to boot up. There seems to be a failur
    of some kind…..but I need to get the projects back that are still i
    that disk

    I would be thankful if you could suggest any good tools to get th
    files and documents back

    Why don’t you attach the disk to a working computer as a slave and then
    retrieve your personal documents?

    You won’t need to screw it in place, just put it on a cardboard box to make
    sure it’s not touching anything metallic.

    Just out of curiosity.....

    Do you or anyone else know if XP or Vista will be able to read this
    drive as a slave without disabling the OS bootable partition? I know
    this couldn't be done with the older drives etc but am wondering if
    anythng has changed with respect to this topic in the last few years?

    Thanks!

    1 Slave your hard drive in another computer.

    2 Download Knoppix Live CD and make a bootable CD from it.
    Boot your computer with it, and save your Data to a Flash Drive.
