The final episode in my harddisk tales.

Thursday evening I reinstalled my old harddisk and let Windows start. And how strange it was to find out that Windows didn’t see the drives on that new disk anymore.

So I rebooted from the Win98 disk and the D and E drive were accessible again. So I copy the files I wanted to rescue and removed the disk from my PC.

Friday I ran the diagnostics of the PowerMax tool from Maxtor and it failed. Unfortunately the disk is out of warrant so I guess I’ll have to throw it away.
