The following post is completely taken from an article entitled “200 Ways to Revive a Hard Drive.” It appears that it is made up of Tech Rupublic users’ tips on how to get data off a failing hard drive. I found this document on a disc called “Tech Tools” and I reproduce here for all you guys to enjoy.
If you have a dead or failing hard drive these tips can get it back up and running temporarily so that you can get your data back. However read the disclaimer before trying any of these tips.
