My old reliable 200X computer finally bit the dust and, you guessed it, nothing was backed up. The IT guy at my office was in one day and offered to recover the data from my hard drive that died to a new portable HD. He said he thinks he got all of the data files, but there were a lot of them & to let him know if he missed anything. Well, finally got my new & improved computer up & running and trying to move files to it. I'm missing some files now that I'm looking for them. Instead of taking the thing back to the office & waiting for him to come back (could be weeks), I'd like to try to get the data myself. He had a set of wires running from my old/dead drive to the PC in the office, then to the portable HD. Anyone know what exactly he might have been using so I can get those items to finish recovering my data? Any special software needed for this kind of transfer? Looked to me that he was just moving the data thru Windows Explorer, but I'm not sure.
Any advice is much appreciated!! TIA!
