How do I get data off a bad hard drive
I"m trying to help a friend whose Mac mini hard drive supposedly died. I took it out using your guide - couldn't access it in its housing - and used a USB interface kit to try and read it to pull off the data (pics) that my friend wants to save. I hooked up to a Mac desktop and it didn't show up. I then hooked it up to a Win 7 PC and, using Disk Manager, was able to see it (also showed up in Device Manager) but it has no letter assigned or volume (and Properties says it is working properly) so I don't know how to get to it. The section (1 of 3) that has data on it looks fine but all the options under right mouse click are greyed out except for Help. Any suggestions? Am familiar with Terminal and some of the commands but I'm stumped - or else the drive is really fried!
Is this a good question?
