I'll echo other ppl here. We'll need more info.
How much does the drive work ?
Spins up ?
BIOS see it ?
>From there, ya got the copy/paste options with another drive, or my
preferred method: ghost (or similar alternative) copying it with ignore
errors turned on.... then attempting to molest the image file (or loading it
onto a known working drive).
Options of replacing the controller board on the drive are good as well.
Have done that a few times.
External drives are cheap and usually have software available to
auto-backup stuff, etc. Seriously consider suggesting your friend spend the
$75-$150 on something like that.
I have a neglected backup solution in place, but foolishly rely on raid1 for
my primary means of fault protection.
Shrock Innovations sounds really interesting!
