hard drive shows no free space- helpLocked
i just removed the hd from my toshiba a15-s129 laptop, which had failed a few months ago, possibly due to power issues. the toshiba simply will not power up. my plan became to try to extract information using my new external nexstar 3 enclosure. i got the toshiba hd in view on my dell d610. it shows up as completely full in the visual disk in properties, with no free space. i dont see it in disk management. are these indications that the disk is dead with no chance of revival? i have what i need to reinstall xp on it, if necessary, but id like to know if its beyond extraction of data first…or if, worst case, the hd is beyond repair.
thanks for any assistance,
