Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Data Transfer from hard dick.

\015 I paid a computer repair centre to copy the disk info onto a CD Rom.I fitted a new hard drive and loaded XP. Also Office 2003. The computer works fine. Also connected to the Internet.The CD Rom was located into its drawer and the drive is allocated 'E'.The information on the old hard drive and the CD Rom is an accounting programme and the datafiles.Through Windows Explorer, I located the setup icon for the programme. I doubled clicked and it copied files to C. When I click the short cut icon for the programme, the programme window opens. The next thing, a message appears stating it 'Can't get into a file in the e: drive.So I un-installed the programme and copied the whole of the CD onto a file in C/ Programes/. I opend the file and once again setup the programme.Selected the Programme icon. and it still looked for a file in e:The problem I had with the original hard disk was when the computer booted up, a message appeared like 'Bott file missing, please load system disk.Any ideas.\015

Fadec,
Unfortunately, this doesn't sound like a good situation, or exactly what you want to hear. It sounds like there was some corruption to a program file as it was copied to the CD during backup. That is pretty well confirmed by the fact that you can't access the data from either the CD or the copy of the CD.
About the only thing that I can suggest is to try to obtain an original copy of the program that you are using and load that. Then try to access the individual data files through the newly loaded program. You may have to copy them into the program for this access.
If the data is worth it, you might be able to contact a company that specializes in data recovery. I've never had to use one, but my understanding is that they are quite expensive. If you want me to research those costs, please let me know.
I might also suggest that you attempt to recover what the company that did this for you (to you!) charged you for the copying service. They apparently didn't do you any favors and should refund the amount to you.
Please don't beat me up on my rating just because There is no way to easily recover this data.... ;o)
Sorry, I wish there was a better answer to give you.
