re: Access harddrive data???? How to check if it is corrupted?

Hi all,


I have a dead lenovo y560 with all my data due to graphics module failure. I tried accessing the data using an external esata enclosure, but  cannot  access the drives where I stored my data: maybe due to the rapid drive thing. 


Need help on the following:


1. Is there a way to know if the hard disk is corrupted? If  not, how to retrieve the data?


2. How much is the mainboard? I cannot find my receipt so I can't register the base warranty Smiley Sad 


3. Where do you get the fru part number of the mainboard for ordering?


....Any help will be much appreciated.

I am almost certain its the RapidDrive technology in your way...


I had an issue where my OS wasn't booting after installing too many updates and drivers at once. I couldn't get into the OS to split the partitions to reinstall. I tried with the Windows 7 disk, but I couldn't access the partitions, they were still joined. When I tried to reinstall on the joined partition, It gave me an error that it couldn't create a system partition.


So I tried my XP disk and voila! It was able to see both my SSD and HD, split. So I was able to format the SSD and reinstall with the windows 7 disk.


So if I were you, I would try to access the drive from a computer running XP. Maybe something in XP cripples the RapidDrive technology. Or it could be because the driver is made for Win7, so it doesn't load.
