USB hard drive not recognised in rescue & recovery

2008-10-11, 20:08 PM
Having successfully copied all my backups to an external hard drive, now that I've restored my T61 to its factory state, rescue and recovery is refusing to recongise the drive. I've made sure it's connected before turning on my laptop, and I've also tried connecting it only after I'm inside R&R, but nothing makes any difference. I'm desperate to get hold of my old files so I can continue working, so any assistance would be really appreciated. Thank you! Sarah

Me again: by the way, I forgot to mention that my reinstalled version of Vista is quite happy to recognise the external hard drive -- as was R&R before I began the restore process.... Sarah
