Step 1: Connect the victim hard drive to another

Remove the victim hard drive from the current system and connect it to another computer as a secondary drive before you can do any work on the crashed drive. One of the cheapest and easiest ways to do this is to buy and use a USB to IDE/SATA adapter.

Alternatively, you can connect the drive to another desktop computer internally as a secondary drive. If you do, make sure that the machine detects the drive in the BIOS or you won’t be able to access it once the computer starts up.

Step 2: Try to move the pictures you want to retrieve to a healthy drive

After you connect the drive to another computer either internally or with the USB adapter, check to see if you can browse the contents of the drive. It is worth trying because maybe it wasn’t the drive itself that actually crashed. If you can, try to copy the photos off that you would like to recover. This might not work if you are trying to recover files from a dead hard drive but there is a chance that only the operating system is corrupt and the data is still not affected.

Step 3: Recovering photos from crashed hard drive

When you can’t able to copy the pictures to another drive, you can try to restore them using photo recovery application. Whatever, you do, do not write anything to the drive that you are trying to recover image files from. This means you should not install the recovery software onto the drive that you are trying to restore files from. Doing so could actually overwrite files that are still hidden there and that you can still get back.
