Got a failing HDD that won't boot. Wasn't able to get data backed up before it wouldn't boot.
Got the new HDD in and a SATA/USB adaptor for the bad one and it's showing up as a GPT Protective Partition. There's no drive letter and the only non-grayed out option is to convert to dynamic disk.
Is there anyway to get the data off? It only stays connected to the PC for a few minutes at a time so long running data retrieval software probably not an option. Anyone know of any good ones in case it comes to that?
It's an all-in-one unit so only one internal SATA port that I can see. Dell Inspiron. WD blue 1TB HDD 7200RPM
Not my PC and got it after it wouldn't boot so no lectures about backing up please.
