This is all strange. When I ran my 320 gb wd hdd containing the vista operating system onto my R51 thinkpad laptop, I could view all of my files. Of course my R51 thinkpad laptop got damaged and had to get a new laptop to continue to use my hdd. I got the T43 thinkpad laptop and of course could not immediately use my 320 gb wd hdd because of the 2010 error and the blue screen of death. I continued to used my R51 laptop until it was completely damaged. Obtained a linux live CD and insert my 320 wd gb hdd into the slot of my T43 laptop , and accessed my files through the linux trial operating system , and did not see all of my files, even though my properties showed that my harddrive had a significant amount of free space, the same amount of free space that was used when I used my hdd on my R51 laptop. All I saw was when I clicked on each of the folders of my hard drive in linux was about 700 mb - 1.5 gb of space each time I clicked on the folders.
I talk to a person who works in IT and they've told me that sometimes when you are transferring files from a harddrive disk to an external hard drive, the systems files sometimes will not transfer. But I not even sure if this is the problem, because when I access my 320 gb hdd from a boot linux live cd, I don't see all of my files. I see the programs, but not my files that I saved the programs and applications in.
