Freeware :: Acronis True Image WD Edition

This freeware from Western Digital saved me a lot time after my Windows XP corrupted (again!!) yesterday. Instead of spending a few laborious days to reinstall more than 30 utilities software and a fresh copy Windows XP, the recovery of my PC Windows system was completed in a half-day after a proper format NTFS was selected for my C drive. The backup recovery usually is taking less an hour if no glitch in the harddisk format.

Your must have at least a WD harddisk to use this WD edition software, otherwise it will simply not working. Seagate provides similar freeware, DiskWizard in their website.

Are your hard disk still accessible?

If not, the harddisk is damaged physically, nothing you can do. If it still accessible, use the Minitool power data discovery software to retrieve the data. Check the freeware section on where to download it.

Back up your harddisk next time. I lost some data before and learned the hard lesson.
