    If they weren't stored on the computer, then they can't be recovered from the computer.

    Depending on how the drive "malfunctioned", they may be recoverable from that drive. I've used EaseUS Data Recovery in the past, but there are several other options (free and not free), and most will at least let you examine the drive to see if the data can be found before you actually buy the software.


    Having said that, ALWAYS backup or make multiple copies of ALL data that you don't want to lose. Hardware is damaged and/or fails all the time. Usually without any warning. Be safe with the stuff that is important to you.
