After reformating and installing XP again my secondary drive (IBM Deskstar - Before all the problem they had) isn't being recognized. I've run EasyRecovery but the files it lists do not include everything on the drive. Not to mention losing the file names.
I'm thinking the MBR or a TOC somehow was corrupted. Is there any way I can restore the drive temporarily so I can transfer everything off it and replace it with a new drive?

Hey Andrew, do you have the new drive installed? I've had harddrive crashes before where I was able to pull all the files off even though the drive was scrapped.

I'd have both drives installed, load Windows on the good drive and then run

File Scavenger -

PC Inspector File Recovery


Stellar Phoenix NTFS

Each one works better in different circumstances.
They load the corrupt drive in a Windows Explorer type view and let you save files or whole directories.
