Greetings: Wonder if anyone can assist me with a data recovery problem?
XP machine with 200GB hard drive.
As the machine is old, the power button broke, and the owner was having other issues with software operation, so I opted to move the hard drive to a newer machine. Pulled the drive, and using IDE to USB adapter in laptop was finally able to see the drive.
Using Spinright to attempt data recovery, the error message is "error reading partition table disk 1 sector 0".
The sector 0 error makes me think virus. Is there anything to be done to recover the owner's data?
