In this post I've been asked by 3 separate people about how to get back back - my advice is to go to a data recovery firm. You can expect to pay around about £500.
I have a WD My Passport Ultra 2TB external harddrive, and it's become corrupted! I'm not sure how – I haven't dropped it, though I do carry it around a lot so it's possible to got knocked in transit. I have a lot of data on there I would like to recover – could you let me know how much this would cost, and how long it would take?
I have Toshiba external drive STORE.E PARTNER. I have not used this drive for about 2 months but today when I connected it to my laptop I just get a message on screen that usb device cannot be recognized. I tried to connect with another cable ( I have second hard drive which works on these cables )and to another computer but the drive is not working. It seems that there is a problem with power- blue light is not showing and it is not making any noise. Are you able to recover date from this disk or repair it.
Seagate external hard drive not recognised by any computer when plugged in. It also has a flashing blue light when plugged in but will not show up on pc, also can hear ticking noise, not knowing dropped, last used when transferring large amounts of data across from old pc laptop that we no longer have
I have an external Samsung hard drive. When I plug it in with windows, I cannot see it under windows. When plug in it makes a small noise for 30s then do nothing.
My external drive has stopped working. I am not sure what the problem is. The outside looks damaged and when I plug it in it makes a odd noise and the PC and Mac don't recognise it at all. It would be great to hear from you whether there's a chance to recover files from it. Would you be able to give me an estimate of how much would it cost?
