My girlfriend's dad has two older pc's laying in his office that he asked me if I could get the data off of it. One, the power supply was bad and the other, he says, worked fine last week. I think they were running windows 98 or around there. Anywho, so i take out the hard drive from the dead power supply machine and set it up as a slave on the other one. Boot it up and it says the boot failure, no operating system. So I think that the jumpers weren't set right, so I check, they are set right. So I put every back the way it was before I opened up the "machine that ran last week", and I get the same boot error. Well, ***** great. So I take both of the hard drives home and put them in an external enclosure and hook it up to my pc. Nothing, the one dead power supply hard drive doesn't spin (I couldn't remember if it was spinning before) and the other won't show up. They external enclosure does show up in the device manager, but nothing on it. So the question is, is there any software out there to maybe get the data off of the one that does spin? (I'm just thinking that the hard drive that doesn't spin is a lost cause). I know of a few 30-40 dollar software, but wanted to check to see if anyone has tired to see if they work or not.
