Hello,

Here's another spoof !

I just bought an Mad Dog HD Enclosure to serve as an external drive device, but, . .

I wanted it especially to open a downed computers HD, problem is, in order to install it you need to reformat the drive, I thought I would save myself the trouble of opening the case and having to install the HD as a slave which, I think I would have a problem setting it up that way, since I can't find the little plastic covers that arer suppose to fit on the pins, and if I did have them I would need to know where they go, but I felt that it might be possible to have a knwledgable and experienced computer fix it person to tell me if it is possible to get around this ? and retreive the data off the old HD using the Mad Dog HD enclosure?

Has anyone heard of Partation Magic it is suppose to be a software that can solve this but I really don't have any info that I can understand !

I turned it on and it came up with a Local Disk (E), but I am confused, where is the file for my Documents to begin with ?

This is what they look like;

Check within Documents and Settings. You should have various users in their; yourself, administrator, all users, default users.

You should see the "documents folder" within each users folder.

And yes, I have used Partition Magic in order to resize partitions. Works very nice. (won't work on a server though).

With the new Vista, the OS has the ability to resize partitions.

riqacci,

Thanks for your assistance, . .I was able to find it using search (E):, etc.

I have another question I have another HD I put into it and installed driver etc.
It was an HD that had a file 32 problem and could not be fixed at the time, anyway it crashed the computer, and I was not able to get it back up, at the time I don't think I tried a reformat, anyway its humming in its case but I can not find it in MY Computer, I don't think it's registering.

Any considerations ?
