RE: [midatlanticretro] OT Windows SATA Data Disk File Recovery
- Spinrite from Gibson Research was purchased and set up on a computer and used to process the disk as well as a new disk as was recommended. If anyone ever has a problem spinrite should be considered. More processing before being completed but it definitely is the method.
Thanks for your advice.

Donald .. I recently shut down my repair shop, but what I'd suggest is
running SpinRite on the drive, in a separate computer.
