[tech ques] recovering data from a failed hard drive
So I have a 500 gig WD hard drive that just recently failed. It still spins, and its still recognized by the BIOS, but when I try to boot up the computer with it normally, it causes Windows to take forever to boot. And if it does boot, windows doesn't recognize it. So through much hardship, I finally got a USB DOS boot drive working and I can see the hard drive with Fdisk. So the question is, how do I transfer the data on it to my recently purchased 2 TB drive? Is there a DOS program that can help me transfer the files or repair the discs, even though DOS can't see the whole disc because they are both too large for DOS?
