Accessing 3.5" IDE files from external drive...Denied !
by stephennity - 2/15/13 1:36 AM
I have a 3.5" IDE hard drive with 2 partitions that I am trying to access via an external enclosure...I have connected to my Acer Aspire One netbook but can only access one of the partitions on the IDE drive...the 2 partitions/drives,say E and F are there but I can only access the E drive...when I attempt to access the F drive,a message of "files not accessible" is given.....aarrrgh !
Anybody know how I can overcome this please ? ...before removing the IDE harddrive from the older and un-working computer both partitions/drives were perfectly accessible.
I have no idea what to do but need access to these files...they are my own recorded music files of several years that I have nowhere else...any musicians will have some sympathy I hope if not empathy !
Well...I`ll leave it here and hope somebody may be able to offer some advice.
