    There are lots of good articles that explain how to boot from an external
    drive. Try googling the following: “how to boot from an external hard drive”

    Probably the best option is to get a hard drive enclosure. Check the drive
    connector first. Its either SATA or IDE. If it does look like the ones in
    my video its IDE. Then go online and order the cheapest hard drive
    enclosure you can find.

    That’s a tough one. It could be a number of things from the type of File
    System used on the partitions to the version of Windows you are using to
    connect to the drive. (IE: Windows XP) If I had to guess, I suspect that
    the drive is formatted with a GUID partition table (GPT) instead of the old
    school MBR format. If that’s the case, you’ll need to connect your drive to
    a Windows Vista or higher (IE: Windows 7 or 8) PC for it to be able to read
    the drive.

    There are a few ways to recover lost files. If you are running Vista or
    Higher (Windows 7/8) and you have “Previous Versions” enabled, you can use
    that tool to recover the older version. Google “Previous Versions” for more
    info. If the file is important, I recommend that you call a paid for
    support company like support . com, they will know what to do.

    This video is helpful, I have two questions though: 1. My PC won’t start up
    after a power surge-and yes it had no surge protection-if I do this method
    in the video could my files still be accessible, or did the surge fry that
    too? 2. Could this work transferring files from my dead PC to a laptop? I’m
    looking into one of those rather than another PC if that’s possible. (Not
    sure if it helps but my PC is an HP Pavilion a450m, idk exactly what year
    but it’s a couple years old

    Typically, as long as you can power on a drive and access it you can get
    the data back one way or another. However, it looks like your drive needs
    expert attention to recover the data. That said, if you want to keep trying
    you can download Hiren’s boot CD and try some of the drive tools. Note: The
    latest version of Hiren’s Boot CD should be 100% Linux or Open Source
    tools. Try downloading it via Bit torrent.

    That’s a tough one. I’d have to get the exact error messages off you and
    Google them. I find if you google the exact error message, you’ll usually
    find the answer. Sometimes, you might want to try and good Linux boot tool
    like Hiren’s Boot CD. The lastest boot cd has no pirated software and works
    great. If you use a torrent downloaded there are free, open source versions
    of that CD available.

    Nice video. One question. After you plug into a dock and recover the files,
    is it then possible to fix the system files by copy and pasting your
    computer win7 system files onto the external HD system files foler to fix
    the boot?

    Ya, I’ve come across that too. Often, its a Windows permissions issues. You
    can try to turn off User Account Control (if its on) and take ownership of
    the drive at the root level or on each user folder. IE: c:usersadmin.
    Google “Take Ownership” and the OS version (IE Windows 7) and follow the
    instructions. If you are feeling adventurous, you can always try “Hiren’s
    BootCD”. He’s put together a bootable CD with a ton of Linux tools that
    will work on Windows File Systems.

    Cool video. I´ve tried that and I´ve had excelent results when saving files
    from a HDD (windows 7 and no user account) with the help of a PC (windows
    7). But…. I´ve been having many troubles saving files from a HDD with
    user accounts (no matter if the HDD has windows Xp or windows 7). What can
    I do?

    How to boot windows 7 thats on the hard drive from the dock station? So I
    can open a installed program on the hard drive from the dead computer?

    More than likely. Errors like this indicate that the drive is accessible
    but something is wrong like a bad sector or corrupt file.

    I connected the external dock to the Windows 7 I cannot reassign the disk
    letters. Furthermore, the free space shows 100%. Does this mean that I lost
    all data? Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. I can send you a
    link to the screen capture? liv4poker@gmail.com

    Chances are the only problem is that your Power Supply is dead. I’d
    recommend swapping out your power supply and see what happens. That’s a
    pretty easy job and if that doesn’t work, you can always return the new
    power supply. Just bring your PC into a local PC place and ask them to sell
    you one that will work for your PC. They should be able to figure that out
    on the spot. Otherwise, this trick should work for you. Chances are good
    that your drive is fine.

    To boot off a drive in a dock you would need to change the boot settings in
    the BIOS. You would have to put the drive in the dock at a higher priority
    then the on-board drive. Running a program from the drive would work
    normally if you booted into it this way. If you just connected to it like a
    USB thumb drive you can’t run a program off it unless its just a stand
    alone applications.

    I was trying to dock MyBook 1TB Sata which had some power supply failure.
    The drive is recognized as 4 drives(partitions) but for each drive Windows
    ask to format the drive. How do I access it without formatting it.
