how to recover harddisk data after X24 crash

Discussion in 'IBM Thinkpad' started by Jean-Marie Rayroux, Feb 22, 2006.

  1. My Thinkpad X24 crashed probably because of a "mother card " failure. It has
    a Japanese language XP and a Japanese keyboard. I am using it mainly for
    e-mail to and from Japan.
    I was told to take out the harddisk, to buy an "IDE connection" and to
    transfer the data to another PC. I guess I could do it to my "conventional"
    T42.
    Could someone please tell me how best to proceed.
    Sincerely thank you.

    Two options.
    1. Just keep the drive and put it back in after the X24 is fixed to
    send it you could put in a 'spare' drive in it.

    2. Get an Ultrabay SLIM hard drive adapter for your T42. Put the X24
    drive in this adapter, insert into your T42 instead of the CDROM. Copy
    things over - drag and drop etz.
