Please help me on a solution or temporary retrieving the data.\015\012\015

Answers :

Data recovery software can only retrieve data if the HDD shows in windows. Some disks may not show in My Computer(if corrupted). Another way of checking if the HDD is being detected by windows is using disk management. Click Start,then run, then type compmgmt.msc. Click on Disk Management when the Computer Management box opens. If you HDD is showed among the list of drives there is a possibility of getting our data.If not you need advance data recovery where the HDD has to be physically taken apart.Let me know what your findings are.

Usb problems One of my rear usb ports does not work. When anything is pluged into it nothing at all happens. I also only see 4 usb ports listed, (all are taken and show what's in each,) and I'm guessing the one I'm not using should show up there too as empty, so I'm not sure how to resolve that.
