Un-luckly most of my back up hard drives are firewire connection. Being a Mac fan. But a quick look down the back of the sofar. So to speak. And a long lost USB with files.

If you lot keep all the good advice coming. GF may take up cycling. BUT she would have her eye on my 17'' trimble :shock: :lol:

I've used the free tools on this site to recover both HD & flash drives, (for when you pen drive fails ;-)

http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/file_re ... language=1

There's seperate tools for HD & flash drives - managed to find a load of files even after a format & rebuild of a laptop XP drive, which then failed again.

Does what it saus on the tin but takes a long time if using a USB harddrive caddy - firewire / (e)Sata or internal would be quicker.

Cheers M.

What laptop is it anyway, most the newer Toshiba laptops have a mini firewire connection* .. to aid in the backup and good advice to see your wife on trimble... :lol:


(at least the newer one's, that being 3 or 4 years old)
