Got a problem on my Dell laptop having a Fujitsu HDD.
I was working on a project when my 2 yr. old kid pummeled the keyboard repeatedly while I was getting something. My computer then suddenly slowed down and when I rebooted it says HDD was not detected. I let it off for an hour and when I turned it back on, it said that I'll have to do a repair of the Win2K OS (NTFS) using the original CD. The repair failed as the disk scanning was always aborted by an error. So I brought it to a tech guy where he took the hdd out & tried on an enclosure. The USB device was found but the hdd contents were not displayed. He told me that my best bet is to reformat the hdd or try it on other NTFS units using a USB enclosure.
My problem is that I have lots of important data on that HDD that has no backup, mostly pictures my digital camera. Is there any other way that I can recover them? What is my best option? Please give your valuable suggestions. Thanks.
