greetings....any knowledge that i have gained over the years has not done well to extend to anything computer related. so much so that i disconnected my boyfriends hard drives as the computer was shutting down. i then placed them in a paper bag and im afraid that the shifting of the hard drives coupled with the early termination may have caused data to have been lost. any suggestions? thank you.

if the m/b supports hot removal you need to click on the safe to remove icon in the tray or see the green tick saying it is safe
i always play safe and close the computer down first
if it does not support hot removal the actual drive may be damaged
if the bios is not detecting try another cable
try a cmos reset
if you can get them detected by the bios
d/load and run the h/drive makers diognostic utility on the drive
run
chkdsk /r
