Hey folks,
Ok i managed to get some of the files back on the HDD that was easily lifted out the back flap. There was only 10gb on it...so there must be the bigger HDD inside, if I go and take the laptop apart will the HDD inside be the same as the one that I have now

There was at last 160gb in the laptop and the HDD that i have only holds 10gb

cheers

Doubtful. Only a very few, mostly Thinkpads/Toshiba Tecras and may some high end Gaming Laptops, are capable of taking 2 internal hard drives.

Look at the label of the drive, what does it say it's capacity / model number is?

Not sure what you are going on about, it may help to explain your situation more, what make/model your laptop is, operating system, etc and how you are reading the disk after removing it.

I'm guessing you had some hard disk corruption and want to recover your data though. I've not heard of many laptops having more than 1 hard disk, it is more likely the 1 hard disk in it is partitioned into 2 (or more) different drives. I wouldn't recommend taking your laptop apart, it is very likely you will break it and you will certainly void the warranty.

Was it a different partition and not a different hard drive?


Some of the big HP laptops do have two physical drives.
