  1. I have this 80gig primary slave hardsk and almost all of my personal files are there.
    Then suddenly my 40gig hd is damaged. I buy i new 80gig hd to replace my primary and nstalled it an Wondows XP OS. But my secondary 80g hardsk is only detected on Device Manager and Computer Management the Explorer won't display it. And on the Computer Management it does no a drive path. It de easy to format it but I want to recover my personal files there. It is partitioned into to but it only display one, it is healthy indicated.

    How can I access again my hard disk....PLEASE HELP ME without formatting it.
