How to get data off from virus infected HDD

My old HP system got a huge infection with Zbot.g. Following attempting all the recognized malware applications I'm not actually receiving anyplace. Therefore I've determined to re-install windows XP but there is a problem because there are no backups. Furthermore I cannot connect another HDD to the computer because the Windows XP does not detect the drivers. Moreover the system does not detect any USB based storage devices. So I am asking you is there any way so that I can safely retrieve the data somewhere else.

Re: How to get data off from virus infected HDD

Understand that every one of hard drives have a restricted duration. Usually, on the other hand, most of us do not knowledge crashes. This is for the reason that the standard life of hard drives is much longer than the standard PC media are in employ. That is, until the next time they are replaced with new, more powerful computers. Yet, disk crashes often occur when least expected. This happens most likely with the new units or units that have been used intensively and longer times.

Re: How to get data off from virus infected HDD

We can repair the operating system, reinstall or opt for a clean installation. Now as we want to retain the information that's inside, it would be advisable to buy a new hard drive, install it on your CPU as primary or master hard drive and reinstall it the OS, then try to access the hard drive corrupted , to be left as secondary or slave and dump the documents we want to keep. This is the safest way to do it.
