I took my old hard drive out of a computer that died and put it in a different one. I set it up as a slave on the jumper pin setting and booted up. The computer reads it as E Drive and under RAW format. It wants me to format it but I dont want to loose data. Please help...

If you go to My Computer and choose the slave drive you should be able to view the contents if the drive is not dead.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
