HDD’s Broken

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

I’ve received a large number of broken hard drives (HDD’s) lately and I sent them off to http://www.datlabsdatarecovery.co.uk/ to have the data recovered from them. I have a Seagate freeagent desktop external hard drive. This is suddenly longer recognised by desktop computer. I plugged it into my home laptop with same result. The Seagate box contains family photos and personal docs going back many years. I am hoping there’s a chance of retrieving these with your help? I live in Plymouth, Devon (120 miles from your Bristol office). Is this a problem?

I’m having trouble with a 2TB SATA external drive. The drive stopped working while attached to my computer. It is formatted MS-DOS. The drive spins up, but makes a quiet clicking noise. I’ve taken it from the enclosure and put it in another SATA enclosure and the same happens. I guess that means it’s a mechanical failure inside the drive, or on the board. It has some important data I would like to retrieve. Any chance you could give me a quote?

We have an MSA 2000 with two x 6 disk RAID5 volumes containing a number of VMware VMs. It is reporting multiple disk failures after a power cut.
We have a backup of the VMs via Backup Exec but the database is on a VM which is now unavailable because of the disk failures in the SAN.
We’re working on a workaround but as a plan b I wondered whether this is something you might be able to assist with.
We open for business again on 3rd Jan and must be fully operational.

Seagate external hardrive makes beeping noise and is not recognisable on my mac. Stopped working after I dropped it on the carpet from waist height. Power cable and transformer are working but hard drive doesn’t turn on so unable to access data. My EHD can’t connect to computer. Microsoft Help states possible malfunction. Done some research and could be down to overheating as the drive is stored inside a small drawer. Would appreciate if you could help me out.

I have a very old ibook G4 that will not start. Sometimes nothing happens when I switch it on but occasionally a blank blue screen will come on but nothing else happens.
I have photos on the machine that i would like to recover.
Can you estimate the cost of recovering photos from the laptop?
