Not Working! – Hard Drive

Monday, October 30th, 2017

From the start, I would like to say, that i took this hard drive from my broken laptop and put it in my main pc and used it as a external storage, one day the hard drive started to making click sounds and I realized that It’s not showing up in my pc, I unpluged the drive and tried to open in to see if the pillars where stuck on the disk, but that was not the problem, in the near pc shop (falcon) they told me that It’s unrepairable but im not giving up so quickly, If you could help me or wanted to know more furthure information about the hard drive I would be honored to tell you more.

500 gb 3.5 desktop hardrive started to someitmes fail when booting, then stopped completely, can files be recovered, the photos are the most important type, anything else is just a bonus

Mac book pro 2008 model. Hard drive is clicking and laptop will not load up.

hard drive failed

The hard drive is an old (2004-ish) WD external computer HDD. The lights on the front were on but the drive was not seen by the operating system. I plugged it in again this morning and noticed a little wisp of smoke come out the top, along with a burning smell! I was hoping that the burning was only to the electronics in the box and not the HDD so I disassembled the box and put the HDD into my PC – nothing at all. The data that I want off it are my family photos – thirteen years worth! There’s a few back-ups on there and some other junk probably; I am only interested in the photos, though.
What do you think you can do for me?

Hard drive no longer works. The computer picks up the device by beeping when connected although in ‘my computer’ the device is not found. It no longer feels as though the ‘fan’? is working but does make some sounds. The light comes on when connected to the computer.

I have multiple internal hard drives that I’ve removed from old windows pc’s. I now want to connect them to my macbook air and drag off the data.
Issues:
1. HDD not recognised by mac
2. The op sys on HDD might have a p/w that I don’t know
I’m not interested in keeping the HDD’s but I need all the data.
Are you able to help with this task at all, and what would it involve?

The computer does not recognise the device or it does but partially. When it does the computer sees the drive but it cannot open the file

External 1tb hard drive knocked of table whilst running. Made horrible scratching noise when plugged back in and not seen by computer. Unplugged immediately.

I have a Samsung HDD 750 GB which is not showing up on the PC and I need the data recovering please
It powers and clicks once and that is it

My G Drive Slim, 500GB has stopped working. I had it looked at and apparently the issue is the “reader”. The drive contains mostly excel and word docs along with some pdf’s and jpg’s.

My laptop suffered a power surge. It is a HP Probook.
The chap who looked at it says the hardrive is not being recognised and there are 4 partitions?
It all means nothing to me.
The hardrive has been removed from the machine and I simply need to recover the data. It has some old spreadsheets etc I need and photos of my kids etc.

Just had a hard drive not working – its a Samsung 3tb external drive. the power did not work when plugged in. when I used another power supply it powered up but the light was constantly flashing – what is an idea of cost of repair?

Type A issue, 4 ticking noises on startup Seagate 1 terabyte external hard drive. Seagate scan says capacity 0 data 0. But there are lots of pictures on the drive. Can you help recover these pictures?

Dropped external hard drives

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

A few weeks ago I dropped my external hard-drive (Western Digital 1TB) and it has been making a beeping sound but cannot be accessed. I used the information available on http://data-recovery-tips.co.uk/ to help me get the drive working again and then I sent in to Fields who had initially told me that it was recoverable after the test. After much trying to get in contact with them after this and what I feel was below par customer service, they asked for the encryption password (they couldn’t log in) and only then they told me that it was unrecoverable.

recover data from dropped samsung drive

Recovering the data from hard drives like this Samsung that has been dropped is best left to a data recovery company!

I dropped my external hard drive and now when I plug it into my laptop it clicks and won’t load the data. Would you be able to try and recover the data for me?

The computer can not get access to the external, it takes more than 10 minutes trying to get in and when the time pass shows on the screen “unreadable” or “empty” or “not recognise”. On this time is always doing the same sound like trying to read the disc but stuck on the same point.

The hard drive is no longer being detected by my Mac. It’s made by Samsung and dropped it. I have changed the wires, the power, and checked it against other hard drives which connect fine to my Mac so it must be something wrong with the drive. The power still comes on and you can hear it boot up. I am a videographer and have a couple of recent shoots on there which are yet to be backed up so I really could do with getting this looked at asap!

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB, suspect it’s suffering from click of death, as it’s putting out a constant pattern ticking sound. I already opened the drive to check if it was a stuck head, but the head was parked. I immediately closed back the drive. The drive is recognised in Windows, it shows as a connected device and the name of the drive is showing but the volume is not being mounted, so it doesn’t show in Explorer. It probably has something to do with me dropping the hard drive a few days ago.

My 1TB WD My passport USB 3 hard drive is not being recognised anymore. The back light turns on when I connect the HD to the laptop and I heard the usual noise it normally does but that’s it.
