Does anyone know a good program to recover data from a corrupt drive using NTFS? A week and a half ago my wife's machine crashed bad. I tried the obvious solution of adding the drive to my machine, mine won't even boot with her drive attached. I have had some success with Active@recover from www.ntfs.com. With that I used a DOS boot disk, the program can read the drive but is very, very slow (16 hrs to scan root directory, 7 days to recover 5% of the lost data) I'm trying to recover about 6Gig of digital pics. Using this program It will take about 140 days straight. Does anyone know of a better program or method?

it it's the actual hard drive and it's still under the manufacturer's warranty, contact them... they'll likely get a credit card # from you (you likely won't be charged anything though) then they send you a new hard drive... once you get that one going (install windows, etc) you should check the manufacturer's website (or ask about it when they call) for a program to recover your data from your old hard drive... I've gone through this once or twice with hard drives crashing... both times the manufacturer was really cool about it...

Well im really good at the hardware aspect, but weaker on the programming. i.e. 98%-hardware 82%-Programming. Still 90% tho.

assembly isn't that hard once you figure out how things work... you still need to have programming skills though
