Recover video files from failing Ext HD
on Jan 10, 2012 at 12:52:25 am

I have an external Western digital HD beginning to fail. Can anyone recommend any software that might save my video data to another HD before it's to late?

Yikes!!!!

Open to other ideas - but want to avoid to high costs of a data recovery Company.

Mac G5 OX 10.5.8

Thanks
Gary

Disk Warrior might be helpful, but you never know. If the problem is purely hardware related, such as a bad power supply or damaged platters, it might not help. But, then again, it just might.

Data Rescue and FileSavage are great.
They have trial versions.

I'll second Data Rescue, it has saved my ass a few times.

Ironically, Adobe Bridge was able to see files that other programs could not.

I've used Disk Warrior to recover files from a failing western digital disk.
