|I have a Toshiba Laptop. A little while ago, the system became very slow and started suffering from many crashes. I pulled the HDD out and put in a larger one, formatted it and installed the OS using the recovery discs. (Vista) |
I want to recover information from the old drive as I have in the past using a USB to SATA adapter but for some reason it shows the drive as "Not Initialized". I don't want to reformat the old drive or lose any information on it, I just want to get the files I need from it. If I swap the old drive back into the computer, it still will load everything and work like it did before. I would transfer things this way to a USB Drive but it keeps crashing. I can still do it with patience but I want to know why the way that I have always done things will not work on this drive / computer.
