So, I have a friend whose hard drive is on the verge of obsolescence. It has pretty much died on us. I told them that I MAY be able to get the info off the hard drive using Ubuntu instead of Windows. Well, I had a little luck, but was only able to get about 50 megs off the drive before Ubuntu essentially couldn't see the drive any more.
So I'm curious if there is anything I can do, as a last ditch effort to get this info off the harddrive. Is there anything I can do to MAKE windows or Ubuntu see the hard drive just for the amount of time I need to get some more info off of it, or am I up the creek without a paddle at this point?
I have a dual boot Windows8/Ubuntu 14.01 OS. So I'm happy using either OS to get this done, Or if there is some other app out there. Like maybe Gparted or another hard drive utility that could help me out.
Essentially I want to get this drive up and spinning one last time.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
