WHAT I HAVE:
*Toshiba Satellite A130/A135 series
*Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit
*1st hard drive that came with laptop with the OS on it
*2nd hard drive I separately installed (ST9250827AS ATA Device)
*I Reimaged my OS with the CD that came with the Toshiba laptop (Recovery and Applications/Drivers)
*I took out my extra internal hardrive (ST9250827AS ATA Device) for what i though would be good measure. I dont know if that was the right thing to do.
*I Reimaged my 1st hard drive with thte CD (everything went accordingly)
*Reinstalled my 2nd hard drive (ST9250827AS ATA Device).
*I now no longer have access to it. It gives me an error message of (H:\ is not accessible - access is denied) Note: It used to be named E:\ but i started trouble shooting and inadvertently renamed it to H:\.
*what can i do to recover this hard drive??? I have over 5000 pics, not to mention 1000's of old, old famlily photos i spent 6 months scanning and saving and also family videos. I CAN NOT afford to lose what I have acquired on this hard drive over the the past 3 years.
*Am I doomed??
*is this an easy fix??
*If it is not an easy fix, will I need to go to a computer shop and spend "X" amount of money to recover it??
*Please let me know what my options are if any. (i have NOT reformated the disk) and hoping all my data is still on this hard drive.
NOTE: I DO have administrator rights
