I am new to this forum but have heard great things so I am hoping you all may be able to help!
I have my harddrive from my college laptop (Lenovo r61, SATA HD) and I am hoping to recover the data from it. I don't necessarily want to restore the laptop, just recover the data. I had Windows Vista 32 bit on the Stinkpad and I had a boot password. I am afraid this screwed me!
I know a tiny bit about computers but follow instruction well! I have a USB connection recovery tool and have the harddrive connected to a machine running Windows 7. When I plug it in the disc starts with no concerning sounds that make me think mechanical failure. The recovery partition appears but the main partition does not. Is there a way to recover my data?
Thank you in advance!
