Lost Data on drive from old system, now being used as slave

Post by jmonroe13 » 16 Nov 2009, 21:07

I purchased a new computer, and decided to use the old drive from my old computer as a slave on the new. I installed the hard drive, and when I booted up the new computer, I selected the new drive and the main drive. I had lots and lots of important files and photographs on the old drive. When I tried to move the files and photographs from the old drive to the new. They were gone. I had them stored in the "My Documents" folder on the old drive. The folder is gone.

I have analyzed the drive for bad sectors, and didn't find any. I ran "Recover Files" and no files or photos were found. I put the old drive back into the old computer, and the folder was still missing.

I am not a computer expert, but I can find my way around my computer to a point.

Can anyone help?

Thank you,

Jay

Correction:
