My power supply apparantly went bad and messed up 4 of my drives. 3 of them are under warranty and 1 not which is cool. But the problem is that one of them which was a slave to the master contained a whole bunch of valuable information which I would like to recover. Now I tried slaving it off again but it doesn't even get recognized in my bios. So my question, is there any way that I can get this data back either through dos or something. I really need this data bad, and if I have to I will have to pay to get it back but I am trying to avoid that since I heard that is pretty costly. Please help thanks.

I don't think DOS is gonna help you, since it too, will need the drive to be reconized. here's a data recovery company. goodluck.

It would have been extremely back luck for all 4 drives to have been affected. Have you been able to test them all?

I tested each one by one as the first two went out, and as soon as I plugged them in the power supply got em. The brand new 120 western digital I bought two days ago was gone within a matter of seconds. It started making a clicking noice after plugging it in. I took them over too my good machine in the other room but by then it was too late.

the western digital should still be under warranty, it's a long shot, but try bringing it back to the store and see if they'll replace it.
