Hard Drive Saving

By budrich ·
Our Pentium 90 upgraded to a pentium 155 and operating system upgraded from WIN 95 and 3.11 to Win 98 lost Win.exe when a corupted version of Netscape was downloaded and installed. The Netscape Download killed the WIN 98 Kernel program and a message to reload Windows printed. The system refused to recognize the CD Rom and testing by Renaissance Computers said the main controller failed -onboard I/O. I added a high speed IO Board and another Western Digital Hard Drive 4 GB like the one I can't read now. Norton Utilities 2000 said the boot sectors were blown and attempted to rewrite---however no data on my old drive is readable. Tried a data rescue service and it also said no data found---yet I had a goo drive--Western Digital 4GB onlya year old mwhen sent to Renaissance Computers for reloating windows 98. Their office closed and moved the following week and I suspect that their disgruntled tech may have wiped my
hard drive. ANy good ideas as how best to recover????

Hard Drive Saving

Unfortunately there is no way to recover your data. Data recovery services are very good about getting data off the drive if it is possible. I know this is not what you want to hear, but after four different attempts it is safe to say that it is not possible.
