 !  In To Battle, Summon all your Energy and Magical Powers, Sharpen your Shiny Sword, feed your horse well, Prey to your god, ready your Mind Body and Soul for all out War, Wear your Toughest Lightest Armor, still your mind so you can focus on the Now, and prepare to Hurtle Headlong into battle with the fiercest and most Cunning Enemy. You are about to face the most terrifying Battle ever seen by man or beast, Your Hard Disk Drive Has apparently just stopped working, its all gone nothing can be seen......

You do not need to recall any previous battles or learn any skills to fight this battle you are Prepared!! What you are going to do is literally Resurrect the drive like bring back the dead or in other words, bring all the data back from beyond the Grave:... As You Wheeled Your Hardened Battle Axe in the face of the Enemy, You realize at once in an instant.....that there are two types of Hard Disk Crash, the one where the Physical Integrety of the disk is compomised and the Disk platters and or Heads and or Disk Head Mechanism are damaged, or the other type where the Disk is intact: but the Software refrences to some or all of the files is corrupted or damaged.

We are right in the middle of this most beastly and desperate War, and the forces of good are with you, your sword glints in the sun as you cut your way through what were apparently lost directories and files.... Look if your drive has crashed the data may still be there but you can not see it, Windows reports that the Hard Drive is there, and the Software you got from the disk drive manufacturer reports that the Disk is Ok.... But you just can not find a single flie on the drive, you have tried looking in dos, you have tried Partition Magic, you have tried Windows Explorer and dived in to the Logical Disk Manager in AdminastriveTools, and prity much done all you can think off, but still the files can not be seen.

You Need some more weaponry in your Store or in other words some way of getting to the files within the disk filing System. Basically if the Disk management says the disk is there and Healthy and the Software you got from the disk manufacturer says the disk is good then there is a chance that you may with the right software, tools or cunning skill be able to get the data back. You need a tool that can essentially find the FAT allocation tables or what may be left of them and rebuild refrences to the files on the disk.

Chephren repairs investigates and also we usefully have started a New Web Forum at All about Data Recovery and such stuff to get to this forum click this link below:

For a long time the link on this page to our Data recovery Forum has not worked, there is an historical reason for this and we explain right here: We started using phpBB which is an open source bulletin board and we found that after it had been installed for only a few days, some people, several infact, had got onto the board and placed messages of a highly dubious nature to various porn sites and places where you could get various drugs and penis enlargers from among other things: and had at the same time deleted the original posts that we had put onto the message board!! Clearly phpBB is not alway completely secure, so rather than trying to fix this, we uninstallled phpBB and instead installed Yabb2.1, this is written in Perl another language, not php, and is we believe more secure. There will be shortly some blog messages on the Computer Fixer Blog shortly, (knowen as: The Screetching Bald Eagle!) explaing how to use our Yabb forum board... this is very new at chephrenrepairs but will surely become popular fast.
