Need help identifying a corrupt disk in Windows - a question

By torrenter

  1. I have two hard disks, one of which is corrupt. Thankfully it's not my C:\ drive. But the recovery software I'm using only allows me to select a physical drive by it's make and serial number.

    Problem is I don't know if my F:\ drive is the Maxtor or WD:confused:

    My question is:

    Are the disk locations of Disk 0 (C:\ drive) and Disk 1 (F:\drive), from looking at C:\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer Management\Storage\Disk Management

    the same as

    Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0) for my WD drive and
    Location 1 (Channel 0, Target 1, Lun 0) for my Maxtor Drive

    from looking at Properties/Hardware/Device Properties via right clicking a disk in My Computer?

    Any help would be much appreciated:)
