another day another problem,i think my hard drive has gone bad, the problem started the other day, went to switch it on and got operating system not found, so was told that the mbr went bad, so i tried to do a repair with a win98 boot disk i typed in fdisk/mbr now all i get is no fixed disk present,
all i want to do is take the data of it is this still poss.

Had the same problem recently on my slave drive - disk drive motor dead - data lost. Fortunately, all backed up. Trouble is you don't always get a warning that this is about to happen.
