In some cases the owners can manage to see what kind of failure they are dealing with in connecting the sick hard to a secondary computer. So, if you happen to have around another computer take your failed hard drive and connect it to this computer using a universal USB drive adapter. If you don’t have this device around buy it from a nearby store or from an online site that offer such tools to customers. After connecting your failed drive to the healthy PC it is very possible for your lost data to show up on the screen of the secondary computer.
