Make sure your data is safe
If you don't want to be nervous, you can simply use DiskInternals Partition Recovery software to recover data or create a disk image. This program copes perfectly with tasks of any complexity, and a failed hard drive is no exception.
You can connect it to another computer as an external hard drive and recover all the missing information using DiskInternals Partition Recovery. The program has a high potential and provides a deep scan of each section of the disk, so as not to miss a single byte of data. It is also possible to convert any selected file system for in-depth analysis of the contents of disk partitions. This is done in the case of damaged file systems or when they cannot be read.
Don't worry about recovery limitations - DiskInternals Partition Recovery recovers up to 1 PB of any type of data. Also, after any scan (fast, full, reader), you can preview recovered files for free to make sure of the program and only then buy a license directly on the company's website online. You will also have the opportunity to create a disk image for free if you want to use the saved system configuration in the future.
