Have my old Win98 (HP 4550Z) hd, the data of which which I did recover using an external HD. Something happened, and I had to reinstall my XP Home OS, and of course like a dummy, I did not backup, online or a cd, the my documents data that I had recovered.
Then I tried same recovery, but the win98 OS no longer opens. A dos type info system opens (HP, I think), telling me that I am missing a windows exe prog. Right now, the HP puter itself is mechanically down.
Now using a 2006 HP a1010n, with xp home, sp3.
Can I, via the slave HD hookup on this a1010n, access the my documents data from the old win98 hd, and save that data to a cd, the a1010n hd, or export them to an online backup? Any How to's around?
Any hd recovery progs recommended? Prefer, freeware of course.
Thanks much in advance, Diligent
