A little while ago I was running Windows ME on my computer, when the hard drive began to behave very strangely - basically, there were a lot of bad sectors on it and the corruption was somehow spreading. Eventually Windows refused to boot. So I got a spare hard drive off a friend, onto which I put Windows 2000 (yay!
). Only problem was that I chose to format it with NTFS rather than FAT32. Now I need to know: can I put the old HDD into my computer and take files off it? I want to see if any of the files on it can be recovered, but I don't want to have it in my computer any longer than absolutely necessary, since I don't know exactly what was wrong in the first place...so can I do it? And if I can't, how else can I try and recover files? I really don't want to put it into anyone else's computer, as I've got enough problems as it is
