One of our servers went down today. It's been on its way out for a while and today it just would not boot up. It keep blue screening at startup. I tried Knoppix like Jeff talked about earlier, but that didn't work for me. So I stuck the hard drive in my other desktop and after many bad sectors in scan disk, the computer booted up. When I tried to open the drive in explorer, it would say "F:\ is not accessible. Error performing inpage operation".

So I called Alex over at One Stop Technology Solutions here in Lawrence and he was nice enough to came by and pick up the hard drive. Hopefully I'll know something tomorrow.

Hi Tim,

Best product you could ever use on a failed drive is Ontrack.EasyRecovery - go get a trail version and keep it handy just in case?
Most of the pros will use it too....
