Seagate External HDD – part of a striped raid set – started making clicking/beeping noise, files on it took longer and longer to load, until the drive entirely stopped being able to be accessed when plugged in. I’m looking to use a good data recovery service in London. I am almost certain it’s misaligned actuator/drive heads – it still lights up when plugged in, still makes noises as if moving, and nothing on it was corrupted when it was working, so it’s definitely a hardware issue. Any idea how much it would cost to either replace/realign the parts so the drive works again, or failing that, recover the data directly from the platter?
Toshiba 1TB external drive. The external hard drive stopped working maybe 1 or 2 years ago. I thought I lost it but then I just found it. Tried to plug the USB into my laptop and I am prompted to format the drive before I can use it. I do not want to format the drive – I would like to recover all the photos in there if possible. There might other documents but I am really mostly interested in the images.
At my work office in London I have a maxtor 3200 external hard drive which has stopped working, there is the occasional clicking coming from the drive and my PC is not recognising it. i need to recover photo’s music etc. can you help? Is this a data recovery service the clinic provide?
I have Toshiba HDD 750 GB which is not detecting. While connecting it via external casing, it give sound cracking noise.
The HDD that I believe has failed (or is about to) is a Western Digital Caviar Green – I originally got two of them in 2012, one failed about a year ago, and the other one is on its way out too, I should have taken that as a warning sign. I turned on my PC to find that windows were unable to read the drive and when I opened Disk Management the data format say’s it is “RAW” instead of “NTFS” which according to research indicates it’s on the verge of failure? I don’t want to format it back to NTFS as I don’t want to lose the data that’s on it.
I was wondering if this is something Data Clinic in London could recover the data and files from? I want the data recovering from my raid hard drives and writing to a server.
The drive is a mass archive that I’ve had for 3 years, and is, or was growing weekly, thus I don’t want to risk any damage being done by free software recovery tools. Since the discovery earlier, I have not tried to recover anything from the drive, and I have since unplugged the drive, hoping that this is something you may be able to see to?
Dropped External Hard-drive and the computer is not loading it anymore.
The hd makes a different noise when booting up.
Opened the hd case to check if the usb adapter was plugged in properly and the connector doesn’t seem damaged
I have 2 external hard drives, one being a maxtor and the other being a segate both having 1tb of data. The maxtor one is recognised by the computer as the computer makes a recognised noise when inserted but isnt shown in the “my computer” tab and makes scratching and beeping sounds with whirring sounds aswell. the segate one is recognised in my computer but when clicked on in it says “that the location is not available and is corrupted and unreadable.
