Hard disk data - cannot find

P: n/a
My eMachine when boot up, will ask "Press F11 for recovery". I just leave it
and it will boot to WinXP. this eMachine just died. I hooked up its HD as
slave to other computer, try to move my own data files out to the new
computer. But when boot up, can only see the "Recovery" part of this HD,
cannot see my own data files. Can anyone help? Thanks.

It sounds like something happened to the partition where your OS and data
files are (were?).
At this point you need to either find some good partition recovery software,
or seek the services of a data recovery specialist.
The question you must answer is: how much is my data worth? Only you know.

Here are some possibilities:
