I was adding another hard drive to my desktop and before i could partition and format the drive to copy files onto the original harddrive with my windows and everything on it went out. It loads to the "loading your personal settings screen" and then shuts off. I ran a diagnostic and came up with some error code but thats not important. Is there anyway i can recover the files at all. Also if i wanted to make a carbon copy of an existing hard drive onto a new one what would be the process for that.
Original HD: Maxtor 80Gb
New HD: Western Dig 80

also if the old drive has failed, put it in a ziplock, put it in the freezer till it's nice and cold, install it and before it heats up, you might be able to pull things off of it, MAYBE. YMMV

Once you have the old HDD on the system so you can access and the new HDD up and running, go find Handy Recovery 1.0 at simtel.net. If this one cannot recover it (which I have had happen with floppy disks in rare cases), you can get Handy Recovery 2.0 from www.handyrecovery.com.
