hey guys, I have a question here about a hard drive a friend asked me to look at.
It's a 300 gig (maxtor I believe, I dunno I don't wanna take the case apart again) drive, that was designed for being aportable one. It has the USB adapter case with it.
Anyway, I took it off the adapter, and then I hooked it into my computer. The problem is he was working one night, and he backed his wheel chair over the cable and it came crashing off his desk. He hasn't gotten it to work since then. Now when I try to access it it says that it isn't formatted, so I'm assuming it's fried. But I was wondering if there is any possible way to get into it and see if there are any files that can be salvaged, or if I have to deliver him the bad news. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
