|It Worked! Kind of...|
So I bought that exact Vantec adapter, and connected it to my bad HDD. I opened the My Documents folder on the bad drive and started trying to copy the folders. Some of the files within the folders transfer and some do not.
When there is a file that wont transfer, I can put my hand on the drive and feel it trying over and over to read. So what does this mean? What exactly is broken?
And what is the BEST piece of software the pros use to read a disk like this for my situation?
