I have two hard drives in my computer, one as a master and the other as a slave. After being infected with a virus, one drive crashed (I think I may have accidentally cleaned out something that shouldn't have been cleaned). So, in an attempt to save the information on the drive, I switched the two around. For a short time, I was able to access all the data and files on the infected drive, but then it came back as inaccessible.
Currently, the drive is listed whenever I click on the My Computer icon. But whenever I try to access it I get the message "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." Is there a way to fix this, even temporarily, to retrieve the data before reformatting it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
