    Help me….my hard disk is damaged!!!


    Hi everyone , I am employed as a manager in a firm. I have a problem that I had like to talk about. My system was working fine the other day, but while copying a file by nero….the system hanged and I had to restart it. But I got a disk boot failure error. Then , I tried to run a windows xp installation CD, but that is also showing some error message during installation and the installation fails.I did check the bios settings and the disk fails to show…and had it checked on another system also…but bios cannot detect the hard disk.I think the disk is damaged or something like that.The disk has important data from my company’s point of view…..that I need to recover.
    Please let me know if there are any ways to get my data back from this disk!!!!

    Hi and Welcome !

    If BIOS is not recognizing HD then there are a little chances of data recovery. Try Recovery Tools provided by your Hard Disk Manufacturer. Check Manufacturer's website for recovery tools.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I think that your disk is probably damaged …cannot guess any other reason for failure.There may be some problem in the controllers or can be another thing.The best way is to get a professional team that can recover data from damaged drives . They can be your best resort as they have tools and ways to get the things done.

    All the best to you.
