Lost Photos

  1. My daughter's computer fried and won't even power up anymore. We have a bunch of photos on it that we hadn't backed up. Is there any way to get those somehow?

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Well when you say that it fried, what do you mean by that ? Will it not power-on or did it go up in smoke ? If you can somehow get the hard drive out of the computer, you might be able to put it into an USB enclosure & transfer the files onto another computer.

    pull the hard drive and try to access it as an external drive on another system. ALWAYS back up.
