Dying Disk

Post by magdi » Wed Sep 30, 2009 4:17 am

Hi there,

I had one of your old versions about 6 years ago and I know your latest one is one of the best in the market.
Now, let me come to the point. I have a dying disk. I read your manual for the latest version and the advice is to make a disk image. I don’t want to buy the software and then feel that I am still stuck.
My problem is that the disk is 500gb. I don’t have spare one that is that big. The spare I have is only 250gb but the data on the dying disk is about 200gb. Is it possible to make a disk image of the data only or do I have to get another 500gb disk?

Just create a region on the dying disk and make an image of that region.
See http://www.unformat-unerase.com/Unforma ... index.html -> Data Recovery Using R-Studio -> Advanced Data Recovery -> Regions.
You may use the latest version of R-Studio in the Demo mode for this purpose.
