reading a d drive partition via USB

By v.b.ortiz.lopez ·
Hello there,

My laptop crashed and will not start again due to a motherboard problem.

The laptop's HDD was still working, so I got a USB enclosure to connect the HDD to a desktop.

Now my HDD had two partitions, one for the OS (Windows XP) and the other for data (that is my job files, and most important my postgrad thesis)

When I connected my new USB-HDD to a desktop I was able to read and copy from the first partition (originally disk c). However I can't see the other partition (originally disk d) in the windows explorer.

So basically I do not have access to my data since the "d" partition does not show up.

Any ideas how can I get those files back? The HDD is working, but I can't read partition d. Both partitions are in HPFS.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
