I am sorry for confusing my two inquiries on this one post. I do have two situations needing guidance.
This one involves a crashed drive which probably has a bad control board. This drive was my primary HD
with OS and programs. No major loss except for reloading time of software. It did have email records which are of some import.
Tha main loss is the image of the second drive, my data drive for all records created in software form HD
It is possible that the data on the new drive, supposedly an image of the old data drive, will be accessible with a data recovery program. I am not betting my 1040 on that, however. So, I consider two options. One may work. If necessary, I will try option of replacing crashed drive board.
I will try partition repair utility.
Thanks to both of you.
