Specs: windows 8, 8 gb
I have sold my desktop which had windows xp and took backup on a 320 gb harddisk of my friend which was extracted from a laptop's hard disk.(Toshiba) hard disk. When I plugged the disk in the usb it was not detecting so I formatted it and it worked. I took the backup and got a new laptop.
I had ubuntu os in which I have inserted the hard disk but it did not read it n then I have put on a windows 2000 system I think in the college library. one of my friend who is working in networking field told that there is RAW partition instead of NTFS and it loads & loads & ultimately asks for a format. atlast in the file explorer it shows
J:\ is not accessible
data error (cyclic redundancy check)
please help its my 5 years old data and most memorable ones. please help :('

"cyclic redundancy check"

This indicates a hardware problem, usually a faulty hard drive, a faulty USB cable,a faulty hard drive enclosure, or faulty RAM.

Test the 320GB laptop hard drive with SeaTools for Windows:

Thanks for the reply,

I have shown the disk to the owner & he plugged the original disk extractor which was in the laptop n checked the same in windows 8 but its not getting detected.

I tried EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard & it detected hundreds of thousand files but finally after 1 gb of free recovery, it will ask for almost $69 which is almost 3500 rs. I invested all my savings in the laptop & now this **** happened. Please help to recover it online. Many get the benefit online so if someone can help me retrieve it i will really appreciate the help.
