I'm was trying to recover some data which was on a external hard disk which went down for no reason and now won't mount of my desk top
I am now trying to recover data transfered to my dodgy ext hd from my pc using easy recovery v6.10 My pc is a hp pavillion dv2007 ea, windows family xp, 1Gb memory, AMD Turion 64 x 2 processer, 100 Gb hd
I tried using version 4 with advance and deleted options, the software was using up 50% of my processer, my internal hard disk wasn't running and the building tree process stayed at 2 o'clock ( the white portion of the circle) during 4days!
I did get a virus and had to get <racine window>\system 32\hal.dll fixed, so there is no doubt I have to re-install my os.
Which is the best option to use to recover useable files transfered and not copied to my dodgy ext hd using easyrecovery v6.10 on my pc (advanced, deleted or raw recovery?)
Is it normal that the tree building process takes over 4 days with my config or is the tree damaged beyond repair when I had the dll fixed?
Thanks for your help
