    Possible to backup data from two hard drives to one?


    I have been building my PC for quite a long time now and I have some important information on it.
    System related things are on my C: drive whereas other things are on my D: drive.
    Is there a way I can backup these drives to one drive of terabyte storage?

    Thank you in advance!

    :)
     

  2. recovering data possible dead hard drive

    Hello, @victorm294!

    Well, I'm really sorry to hear about your accident with the WD HDD.
    I'd still advise to try that WD drive on another PC just in case, and see if it will get detected there, or if it even spins up. You also mentioned you checked all connections, but did you try connecting the WD drive with a different SATA cable?

    If none of these worked, then recovering your data might be a lot more difficult. *Frown Possible to backup data from two hard drives to one? :(
    I'd suggest to turn to a professional data recovery, it also won't hurt to try what @RCoon suggested. However I'm not sure it's going to work, if the drive doesn't even spin up.
    Data recovery companies are costly indeed, but if your files are that important, I'm not sure you have any other choice.
    If the drive doesn't even spin up, we are most probably facing a physical damage from the power surge. This means you won't be able to fix it yourself. HDD physical repairs require a clean environment and technical knowledge of the HDD's structure and components.

    My suggestion would be to get in touch with such a company and explain your situation, hopefully the repair will be affordable. Here's a list of all our data recovery partners worldwide: http://goo.gl/kkn4Vs

    Just a tip: This is exactly why we recommend keeping backups offsite as well, power surges/system failures can result in such unpleasant situations. :/

    I hope this helps you!
    And if you need further assistance or more information,
    I'd suggest to contact our tech support:

    Good luck, @victorm294!

    P.S. Thank you for notifying me, @RCoon! *Smile Possible to backup data from two hard drives to one? :)

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.
