Hi, I have the same problemL my external hard drive crashed on me with backing it up on my immediate to-do list - talk about bad luck. The computer doesn't even recognize it, which is why I'm using PC Inspector (unless there's another program that searches for logical drives and not just physical ones, but you probably know what I'm talking about more than I do). Unfortunately, I run Vista, and strangely, PC Inspector isn't compatible. Does anyone know of anyway I can do the same thing on Vista? (And before you suggest I ask for professional help, the data on it is mostly music which could conceivably be backed up, but it would be a chore - it's bad enough for me to want help, but not bad enough to pay for the help.) If anyone could me, that would be terrific. Thanks!
