G'day, having issues recovering files off an old (about 12 years old) hard drive.
Today I removed the hard drove from the old computer, installed it in a ADS Tech USB 2.0 Hard Drive Kit.

New computer detects and shows old drive as "HOST_FOR_C(H:)"

I'm looking at all files, including hidden files

The file I'm reckoning that has what I'm looking for is a hidden file entitled

No known application will open,
I keep getting "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
When I run CHKDSK on H: it seems okay

How can I get my info out of that old hard drive?

bleeping computer is a great name, I've been "bleeping" at this thing for hours
