If the drive just has a virus then the data is probably salvageable.
good suggestion I'll keep an eye peeled on the bay for a IDE. Kindof like to reuse the external case.
?1. is the IDE interface slower than the SATA interface I have on my newer PC? if not then what is the dissadvantage of LT IDE HDDs ? I know the big ribbon cable on the PC IDE HDD is'nt desireable compared to PC SATA cables.
?2. I think it's certain to say this old 20GB has a virus, I was thinking of plugging it into my new PC and scanning it however I'm relucktant to infect my new PC.
