no...at the present I dont know where the cables are...so I am just generally asking if its possible. I did talk to my cousin who was once the first woman cto of wikipedia and she indicated at that time that the manufacturer might be able to do it.

its been a while
the thing is just gathering dust...and I have a whole lot of work...I am an artist/photographer...that I lost
Computer technician: AnswersByEric, Computer Enthusiast replied 26 days ago

Well, there are two types of recovery possible--one to the general public, and one by use in agencies like the FBI, etc., where they have specialized tools for data forensics. However, unless you have a few grand to spend on those pictures, you won't be able to use those tools.

The one for the public though, which I can provide you, has a success rate of about 90% when recovering pictures/documents, as long as they have not been overwritten.

I should have backed it up but well I didnt and here I am..having lost a whole lot of original work.....I will have to find the cables or but some new ones...right now I have chaos going on...
Computer technician: AnswersByEric, Computer Enthusiast replied 26 days ago

You will just need to be able to plug in the HDD to a computer. Give me just a moment and I will give you the tools needed. The program will be able to recover ANY images that are still available in the memory.
