i had a laptop which stopped working (problem with windows); i took the hard drive out to connect it via usb to another computer to get all the information off it, but when i do, it seems to stop everything else on the computer working, ie when i go to disk management (as it doesnt show up under my computer) it seems to stop disk management working (as in it keeps saying searching or something like that and wont load any drives) but the funny thing is as soon as i disconnect the hard drive it flashes up the drive under disk management and shows the space of it (ie 58gbs). after a while i got a little further; when i hook it up now, it is viewable (to a certain extent, can see main root of har drive, but if i want to delve a bit more, it freezes up). also when i try and defrag or error check the drive it starts but also freezes. defrag got to about 32% every time and comppletely freezes, and ive also tried to change the ownership of all the folders and it gets to the same point and freezes.
Thanks in advance!
