[QUOTE=Whappo;2458412]Just to be clear: Your laptop will not boot up. You removed the hard drive from the laptop and put it in an external enclosure. You want to save the data on this hard drive but the data is in “raw format”. Is this right?
I don’t know what “raw” files are, do you mean pictures that are captured/saved using the raw format? Are you planning on fixing/keeping the laptop? What operating system are you using on the computer that your external hard drive enclosure is now connected to?
What operating system is on your laptop? What brand, make/model, laptop is it?[/QUOTE]
yes that’s correct it will not boot up its a gateway laptop and im running a command prompt in the start menu. i run a chkdsk and it says some files are raw and the program is unable to read those files. it does not say what files are raw. i would like to fix the laptop so i can keep it.
