Data Recovery Q&A

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

My friend has seagate external hard drive and had mac format, but i tried using on windows 10 pc, it didn’t work so tried back on my friend’s mac, now it says not readable, can you please provide any suggestion why it could be that and is it recoverable?

HDD not readable messageI’m told by my local computer repair place that the controller of my seagate external 2TB drive has failed. If this is the case, could you give a rough guide as to the price for recovery.

Internal Seagate Barracuda 500Gb hard drive just died. it is making clicking noise while my computer is starting up and doesn’t get detected by W7. is any chance to recover the data from it? at least the photos

Dropped WD My Passport Ultra (not hard or far from the floor) and now no computer will read it. It lights up and is recognised in the driver yet I cannot open it. Is this something you could repair or get back my information from?

My computer suffered some trauma and my hard drive is inaccessible. I have tried as much as I can DIY to get access to the files but I can’t. Can you examine the hard drive such that you can see how much you can recover of the hard drive before actually going ahead and retrieving the documents? Secondly, how much do you charge for your retrieval service?

No power at all. Need to recover the data to another HD (provided, but Windows 10 operating system).

24hourcomputerrepairs comment: Data recovery is rarely simple. If the hard drive is still working and you instead have a problem with your data then software fixes can sometimes help. But if you have a problem with your actual hard drive, no software is going to help. You will need hardware assistance so Google a data recovery expert.
