just received the drive today though, so getting the data off there is the next step, so far not very easy

might be easier to ghost the drive (hook it up in your pc, and boot with a ghost floppy disk, then write the image to your windows harddrive. When complete, you'll be able to pick thru the image with ghost explorer(ghostexp.exe) and retreive folders and files you want)
are you able to get your hands on a copy of a symantec ghost boot floppy and a copy of ghost explorer ?

another thing, ghost has fantastic compression too, so the image will be much much smaller than the original drive. But you will need a large chunk of space on your windows pc's harddrive. You'll also need to 'image entire disk to image' instead of doing particular slices/partitions

ghost has saved my ass on numerous occassions.

An awesome tool for recovering data on dead windows fat, fat32, and ntfs drives is GET BACK DATA FOR NTFS. It pulls data from drives that windows doesn't even see. Also has saved my ass more than once.
